Title of axes
The title of chart axes can be displayed for the different axes.
The title of the chart axes is defined by grAxisTitle
. This function can also be used to position this title according to the desired axis. You cannot define the positioning and/or the orientation of the title in relation to the axis.
Languages that use a non-Latin character set
grAxisTitle will use the selected non-Latin character set only if the associated project configuration uses UNICODE strings at runtime.
To check the selected option in the current configuration:
- On the "Project" tab, in the "Project configuration" group, click "Current configuration".
- Go to the "Unicode" tab: "Use UNICODE strings at runtime" must be checked.
- Validate if necessary.
