    Good day!

    I know that this is asked frequently, but do you have any options/config to set category labels/axis to auto-wrap?

    I know that you can render "\n" as part of the label to have a line break, but in order to do that we have to set a defined length on where to do the line break.

    We're making the chart responsive as possible and it will be awkward to look at a chart with a wrapped label when there's a lot of space left.

     

    Thanks!

    Hello Ollie,

    The chart option that allows for full customization of the categoryAxis labels is the categoryAxis.labels.visual:

    http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/dataviz/ui/chart#configuration-categoryAxis.labels.visual

    It takes a function in which the custom layout can be fully configured.

    Unfortunately, there is no configuration option via which text wrapping can be set, but you can submit a feature request to our UserVoice portal:

    http://kendoui-feedback.telerik.com/forums/127393-kendo-ui-feedback

    It is closely monitored, and the most popular ideas are considered for future Kendo UI versions. Thank you in advance.
