overlappingBehavior

Decides how to arrange axis labels when there is not enough space to keep all of them.

Type: String|Object
Default Value: 'enlargeTickInterval'
Accepted Values: 'ignore' | 'stagger' | 'rotate' | 'enlargeTickInterval'

When axis labels overlap each other, you can rearrange them by setting the overlappingBehavior option. Depending on whether an axis is horizontal or vertical, this option accepts different values.

NOTE
Unless the rotated option is set to true, the argument axis is horizontal and the value axis is vertical.

The following values can be specified for both horizontal and vertical axes.

  • enlargeTickInterval
    Enlarges the tick interval and, consequently, the interval between axis labels.
  • ignore
    Leaves axis labels as they are - overlapped by each other.

The following values can be specified for horizontal axes only.

  • rotate
    Rotates axis labels through the angle specified by the rotationAngle option.
  • stagger
    Arranges axis labels in two rows in a staggering manner. An empty space between the rows is specified by the staggeringSpacing option.
NOTE
When specified, "rotate" and "stagger" apply even if axis labels do not overlap each other.
Show Example:
jQuery

In the following example, the chart is rotated and the value axis tick interval is intentionally set to a very small value, so that the labels overlap each other. The overlap is resolved by staggering the labels with 2 pixel spacing.
