for (int i = 0; i < 20; i++)
    {
    chart.Annotations.Add (
           new CartesianGridLineAnnotation
               {
               Axis = chart.HorizontalAxis,
               Value = i,
               Margin = new Thickness (0, topMargin, 0, topMargin),
               Stroke = this.m_supportLineBrush,
               StrokeThickness = 1,
               Label = $"Dyanmic{i}",
               ClipToPlotArea = false,
               LabelDefinition = new ChartAnnotationLabelDefinition ()
                   {
                   Location = ChartAnnotationLabelLocation.Right, HorizontalOffset = -15
                   }
               });
    }

I have a chart with dynamically created CartesianGridLineAnnotations with labels. In some cases these annotations are very close together and the labels overlap.  How do I keep this from happening? Is there any kind of "Smart Label" for grid line annotation? 

 

Here is a simple example you can use to simulate my problem

Hello Karl,

We do not have a "Smart Label" feature for the grid-line annotation. But what you can do instead is use the VerticalOffset property of CartesianGridLineAnnotation and manually offset the labels so they do not overlap.

Let me know if that helps.
