Hi,

I have a Chart set up to use rotated labels on the X axis:

      chartAxis.Appearance.LabelAppearance.RotationAngle = 45;
      chartAxis.Appearance.LabelAppearance.Position.Auto = false;
      chartAxis.Appearance.LabelAppearance.Position.AlignedPosition = AlignedPositions.Top;
      chartAxis.AutoScale = false;

The result is very much like the demo that can be seen here:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/controls/examples/integration/chartandtooltip/defaultcs.aspx?product=chart

The actual x-axis labels don't line up with their corresponding points. Is there a way to shift or align the labels so the top of the text is level with the point marker for the correct point.

Regards
Liz

Hi Liz,

 Unfortunately, the rotation axis cannot be controlled - the origin of the rotation is the label center. You can use the labels position to achieve similar results.

<LabelAppearance RotationAngle="-45" Position-AlignedPosition="TopLeft"
</LabelAppearance>

The results however will vary according to the label text length - the longer the text, the outer the right end will go.
