Hi there,

i found an old post where some one asked to rotate the series labels via XAML and C# code behind.
Is this possible and can you show me an example how to do this in an RadCartesianChart.

I have to do it via code behind...

TIA, Andi

Hello Andreas,

There is no explicit API for label rotation, but the series labels are fully customizable so you can easily achieve your requirement. To do so, you can define a LabelDefinition for the chart series and then define a DataTemplate that you can assign to the Template property of the definition. This way you can add a TextBlock and set its LayoutTransform to a RotateTransform

Alternatively, you can use the DefaultVisualStyle, instead of the Template of the label definition in order to apply the transformation. This is going to be a bit easier to adjust in code-behind. In case you want to stick to the Template approach, you can take a look at the Using DataTemplate in Code article.

I hope that helps.
