Hi,

    Is it possible to set the possition of a bar chart series Label based on the value of the bar.

    for example i have a bar chat that is used to display a percentage that can be posative or negative value. it is Horizontal and the 0 possition starts in the middle. so what i want to do is if the value is negative have the label on the right and if posative have the label on the left so it is not overlapping the bar.

Hello David,

This behavior is controlled through the series Appearance properties, namely LabelAppearance.LabelPosition=Outside and LabelAppearance.Position.AlignedPosition = Right.
As you might figure out, this would take effect for all items in a serie, thus the negative would display on the right, but so will the positive. So if you want to fully control this, you would have to build the chart programmatically and when the value is positive, change the AlignedPosition to Left.
