    How do I control the spacing of labels along the x- axis? Some of the column descriptions in my chart are long and run into one another.

    As an alternative, how can I force the label to be 2 lines? I've tried inserting <br> into the textblock text, but this does not seem to have the desired effect.

    I've also set 





     as well as  




    but these settings did not seem to affect the X axis labels

    Hello Dean Jurecic,

    You can find an example of multi-line chart labels here.

    You can also change the RotationAngle value according to the number of items in the chart. You can even set it to 90 so that the labels appear vertically.

    Additionally, you can control the spaces between the labels along the XAxis by changing the LabelStep property of the XAxis, e.g. setting it to 2 will force every other label to disappear.

    Hope this help.
