    We have a simple bar chart that we would like to be able to put the xaxis labels and hash marks on top instead of on teh bottom. Is this possible? If so, can someone point me to some example code?
    Thanks ... Ed

    You need to set Position.Auto to false and Position.Y  with a negative value to move the labels upwards. You may also need to adjust the plot area margins or move / remove the chart title, so that it does not overlap with the X axis labels. To reverse the direction of the ticks and have them appear above the axis line use a negative value for Length. Following is the axis configuration.

    <XAxis Appearance-MajorTick-Length="-234">
            <LabelAppearance Position-Auto="false" Position-Y="-234">

    Hope this helps.
