Remarks

Handling the category labels

The category labels are displayed:
  • below the horizontal marks for the Line charts and Stock charts (Candlestick and BarCharts),
  • below the X axis for the column charts and MinMax charts.
Category label
The category labels cannot be used with the Scatter charts.
The category labels are defined by grCategoryLabel.
The label font can be modified by grLabelFont.
The category labels defined by grCategoryLabel can be displayed in the caption of pie chart (grShowLabel constant used with grLabel).

Initializing the fonts

The default font used for the labels has the following characteristics:
  • Font name: Arial
  • Size: 14
  • Style: Normal
  • Color: Black
When using grCreate, the font used for the labels is the default font.

Orientation of the font

For the labels of a chart, the "orientation" property of the font is ignored.
To change the orientation of the font in the labels, the description of the Chart control must be modified in the 7-tab window.
By default, the orientation is automatically chosen. This orientation takes into account the size and the number of labels to display.
