     Please can you guide me with this issue, I have also attached the screen shot for better understanding. I want to render date labels with "two line format" first line day and month name then in second line time value. How this can be achieved. I have checked with chartLabelRenderer but did not found much regarding this.


    Also the rendering should happen alternatively on x-axis, So that when I render it for first tick then second tick should be left empty and third tick should render the date label like wise will be followed for rest all other ticks, And I also want to limit the number of ticks that will render on the x axis.

    Hi Deepak,

    You can render the date string by setting a date format:

    Please note that rendering a single label on multiple lines is not possible at them moment. If the labels overlap each other different labels can rendered on different lines so that they don't overlap however a single label is always on one line.

    You can tell your axis to skip every other label like this:
    axis.setDateTimeFormat(new SimpleDateFormat("dd MMM hh:mm aaa"));

    To skip more labels increase the argument number.

    Also you can use the label fit mode strategies if the labels become too cramped:
    The fit modes can be multi-line, rotate and none.

    Please write again if you need further assistance.
