    I've start to migrate our RadChart pages to RadChart prometheus. All charts are created in codebehind.

    For the Properties on the X-Axis text I cannot figure out how to expand the region to accomodate large text labels.

    I have large text x-axis labels like "Financial Year 2006/2007" rotated 90 degrees and they are being cropped at about the "Fin" level.

    I am changing properties in the namespace radChart.PlotArea.XAxis.Appearance.TextAppearance area.


    Sometimes with strange results, especially with fills and borders, they don't appear to align correctly with the rotated text.
    I've tried adjusting padding and margins as well with little success.

    Any clues?

    Ok, so just found radChart.PlotArea.XAxis.Appearance.LabelAppearance.

    That's working better now!.

    I'm curious to know why both of these affect XAxis labels: radChart.PlotArea.XAxis.Appearance.LabelAppearance.RotationAngle

    Are they each doing different duties?

    Hello Jason,

    The LabelAppearance.RotationAngle defines the angle for rotating the axis label appearance elements while the TextAppearance.RotationAngle determines the angle for text rotation. The intuitive approach is to keep them synchronized in order to render the content of the axis labels in par with your preferences.

    Thanks for this solution.  I was having this same issue.  Doesn't seem quite intuitive, but I suppose it works.
