Hello,
I am rotating my labels so they do not overlap, but now they overlap the chart itself.  Is there a way to increase the space allotted for the labels?

It is even worse when I have my legend visible.  Suggestions?

Please see my attached images.

thanks,
Sarah

Hi Sarah,

Have you tried using the AutoLayout feature?

Hi Vlad,

I have the exact same problem. I created a custom style for the item labels and I am rotating the labels. Unfortunately, it overlaps with the x axis line. I searched for the AutoLayout feature but it does not seem to be available for Silverlight RadChart. 

<
            chart.DefaultView.ChartArea.AxisX.AxisStyles.ItemLabelStyle = this.BHCharts.Resources["AxisXStyleTextBlock"] as Style;
>

<Style x:Key="AxisXStyleTextBlock" TargetType="TextBlock">
         <Setter Property="RenderTransformOrigin" Value="0.5,0.5"/>
         <Setter Property="RenderTransform">
         <Setter.Value>
         <TransformGroup>        
         <RotateTransform Angle="45" CenterX="0" CenterY="0"/>        
         </TransformGroup>
         </Setter.Value>
         </Setter>
         <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="8"/>
            <Setter Property="Width" Value="130"/>
            <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value="Right"/>
            <Setter Property="TextAlignment" Value="Center"/>
</Style>

Hi,

Is there a solution to this problem? How can I set the height of the X axis panel? How do I use PlotAreaAxisXStyle and PlotAreaAxisXPanel?

Thanks

Hi MATT CANTANDO,

The problem described in the screenshot should never happen. Silverlight automatically handles container layout. Are you using some custom styles setting height/width or alignment of labels?

Can you send us a project where this behavior is reproduced? Thanks a lot in advance!

Kind regards,
