textOverflow

Specifies what to do with the axis title when it overflows the allocated space after applying wordWrap: hide, truncate them and display an ellipsis, or do nothing.

Type:

String

Default Value: 'ellipsis'
Accepted Values: 'ellipsis' | 'hide' | 'none'

Use the VizTextOverflow enum to specify this option when the widget is used as an ASP.NET MVC 5 Control or a DevExtreme-Based ASP.NET Core Control. This enum accepts the following values: Ellipsis, Hide, and None.

wordWrap

Specifies how to wrap the axis title if it does not fit into a single line.

Type:

String

Default Value: 'normal'
Accepted Values: 'normal' | 'breakWord' | 'none'

The following modes are available:

  • "normal"
    Text breaks only at allowed breakpoints (for example, a space between two words).

  • "breakWord"
    Words can be broken if there are no available breakpoints in the line.

  • "none"
    Word wrap is disabled.

If the text overflows the container even after word wrap, the widget applies the textOverflow option.

Use the VizWordWrap enum to specify this option when the widget is used as an ASP.NET MVC 5 Control or a DevExtreme-Based ASP.NET Core Control. This enum accepts the following values: Normal, BreakWord, and None.
