content (e: any) => string

The template which renders the labels.

The fields which can be used in the template are:

  • format—The default format of the label.
  • culture—The default culture (if set) on the label.

The text can be split into multiple lines by using line feed characters ("\n").

culture string

The culture to use when formatting date values. For more information, refer to the article on globalization.

dateFormats DateFormats

The format used to display labels for date category axis. The {0} placeholder represents the category value.

The Chart will choose the appropriate format for the current categoryAxis.baseUnit. Setting the categoryAxis.labels.format option overrides the date formats.

See also kendo.format.

Not supported for Radar Charts. Use categoryAxis.labels.format instead.

font string

format string

The format used to display the labels. Uses kendo.format. Contains one placeholder ("{0}") which represents the category value.

margin Margin | number

The margin of the labels. A numeric value sets all margins.

mirror boolean

If set to true, the Chart mirrors the axis labels and ticks. If the labels are normally on the left side of the axis, the mirroring of the axis renders them to the right.

padding Padding | number

The padding of the labels. A numeric value sets all paddings.

rotation LabelRotation | "any"

The rotation angle of the labels. By default, the labels are not rotated. Can be set to "auto" if the axis is horizontal. In this case, the labels will be rotated only if the slot size is not sufficient for the entire labels.

skip number

The number of labels to skip. By default, no labels are skipped.

step number

The label rendering step—renders every nth label. By default, every label is rendered.

If set to true, the Chart displays the category axis labels. By default, the category axis labels are visible.

  • dataItem—The data item in case a field is specified.
  • format—The default format of the label.
  • options—The label options.
  • rect—The kendo.geometry.Rect that defines where the visual has to be rendered.
