(e: AxisLabelContentArgs) => string

The function which returns the label content. You can split the text into multiple lines by using the line feed characters ("\n").

culture?

string

The culture to use when formatting date values. The specified culture must be loaded as demonstrated in the Internationalization Overview.

dateFormats?

DateFormats

The format for displaying the labels of the date category axis. The {0} placeholder represents the category value. The Chart selects the appropriate format for the current categoryAxis.baseUnit option. Setting the categoryAxis.labels.format option overrides the date formats. For more information, refer to the format method of IntlService.

Not supported for Radar Charts. Use categoryAxis.labels.format instead.

font?

string

The font style of the labels.

format?

string

The format for displaying the labels. Uses the format method of IntlService. Contains one placeholder ("{0}") which represents the category value.

margin?

number | Margin

The margin of the labels. A numeric value sets all margins.

mirror?

boolean

If set to true, the Chart mirrors the axis labels and ticks. If the labels are normally on the left side of the axis, the mirroring of the axis renders them to the right.

padding?

number | Padding

The padding of the labels. A numeric value sets all paddings.

position?

AxisLabelsPosition

The position of the axis labels. By default, labels are positioned next to the axis.

  • When position is set to end, the labels are placed at the end of the crossing axis—

typically, at the top or right end of the Chart unless the crossing axis was reversed.

  • When position is set to start, the labels are placed at the start of the crossing axis—

typically, at the left or bottom end of the Chart unless the crossing axis was reversed.

rotation?

number | LabelRotation | "auto"

The rotation angle of the labels. By default, the labels are not rotated. If the axis is horizontal, can be set to "auto". In this case, the labels are rotated only if the slot size is not sufficient for the entire labels.

skip?

number

The number of labels to skip. By default, no labels are skipped.

step?

number

The rendering step of the label—renders every nth label. By default, every label is rendered.
