Axis Labels

Axis labels display values indicated by major axis ticks.

DevExtreme HTML5 JavaScript Charts AxisLabels

You can configure axis labels using the label object. It comprises options that specify the alignment, font, text, and other attributes of axis labels. Pay particular attention to the displayMode option that allows you to rotate or stagger axis labels.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#chartContainer").dxChart({
        // ...
        argumentAxis: { // or valueAxis, or commonAxisSettings
            label: {
                displayMode: "stagger",
                staggeringSpacing: 10
            }
        }
    });
});
Angular
HTML
<dx-chart ... >
    <dxo-argument-axis> <!-- or dxi-value-axis, or dxo-common-axis-settings -->
        <dxo-label
            displayMode="stagger"
            [staggeringSpacing]="10">
        </dxo-label>
    </dxo-argument-axis>
</dx-chart>

Another noteworthy option is overlappingBehavior. It allows you to decide how axis labels should behave when they overlap each other.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#chartContainer").dxChart({
        // ...
        argumentAxis: { // or valueAxis, or commonAxisSettings
            label: {
                overlappingBehavior: "rotate",
                rotationAngle: 45
            }
        }
    });
});
Angular
HTML
<dx-chart ... >
    <dxo-argument-axis> <!-- or dxi-value-axis, or dxo-common-axis-settings -->
        <dxo-label
            overlappingBehavior="rotate"
            [rotationAngle]="45">
        </dxo-label>
    </dxo-argument-axis>
</dx-chart>
