Resolved Axis Label Overlapping

In this demo, argument axis labels overlap due to their length.

To specify the overlapping behavior, you can use one of the following label.overlappingBehavior modes:

  • none
    Leaves axis labels overlapped.

  • hide
    Hides certain axis labels and leaves more space for the others.

  • rotate
    Rotates axis labels at the angle specified by the rotationAngle property.

  • stagger
    Arranges axis labels into two staggered rows. Use the staggeringSpacing property to specify an empty space between rows.
