I have drawn the Gantt chart with date on X-axis, time on Y-axis.
I  have added the range of the X-Axis using the following Statement

radChart1.PlotArea.XAxis.AddRange(GraphStartTime.ToOADate(), GraphStartTime.AddDays(7).ToOADate(), 1);

I have set the Y-AxisLabel text to "XYZ".

My requirement is to change the AxisLabel text to "ABC", when the user clicks on the button.

I add the following code:
private void btnChangeAxisLabel_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            radChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.AxisLabel.TextBlock.Text = "XYZ";

It is changing the AxisLabel text to "ABC".
But X-Axis ChartAxisItem's TextBlock.Text is not appearing(i.e The dates what i have added to X-axis is not appearing).

Please share the sample code.

Hello chandra,

Are the X-axis items' labels visible before you change the Y-AxisLabel or the X-Axis items' labels get hidden when you set the new Y-AxisLabel? We cannot reproduce the issue locally. Here is a sample code, that changes the Y-AxisLabel while the X-axis items' labels stay visible (do not change):
public Form1() 
protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e) 
    Random r = new Random(42); 
    radChart1.PlotArea.XAxis.AutoScale = false
    radChart1.PlotArea.XAxis.Appearance.ValueFormat = Telerik.Charting.Styles.ChartValueFormat.LongDate; 
    radChart1.PlotArea.XAxis.Appearance.CustomFormat = "MMMM dd, yyyy"
    radChart1.PlotArea.XAxis.Appearance.LabelAppearance.RotationAngle = -60; 
    radChart1.PlotArea.XAxis.AddRange(DateTime.Today.ToOADate(), DateTime.Today.AddDays(7).ToOADate(), 1); 
    radChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.AxisLabel.Visible = true
    radChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.AxisLabel.TextBlock.Text = "Initial text (ABC)"
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) 
        this.radChart1.Series[0].AddItem(Math.Round(r.NextDouble() * 100)); 
private void radChart1_Click(object sender, ChartClickEventArgs args) 
    radChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.AxisLabel.TextBlock.Text = "Another text (XYZ)"
Note, that the range on X-axis is added before adding items to the Series.

Let us know if this example helps.
