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.

Backend API
$(() => { const chart = $('#chart').dxChart({ dataSource: population, series: [{ argumentField: 'country', }], argumentAxis: { label: { wordWrap: 'none', overlappingBehavior: overlappingModes[0], }, }, legend: { visible: false, }, title: 'Population by Countries', }).dxChart('instance'); $('#overlapping-modes').dxSelectBox({ dataSource: overlappingModes, inputAttr: { 'aria-label': 'Overlapping Mode' }, value: overlappingModes[0], onValueChanged(e) { chart.option('argumentAxis.label.overlappingBehavior', e.value); }, }); });

const overlappingModes = ['stagger', 'rotate', 'hide', 'none']; const population = [ { country: 'China', val: 1382500000 }, { country: 'India', val: 1314300000 }, { country: 'United States', val: 324789000 }, { country: 'Indonesia', val: 261600000 }, { country: 'Brazil', val: 207332000 }, { country: 'Pakistan', val: 196865000 }, { country: 'Nigeria', val: 188500000 }, { country: 'Bangladesh', val: 162240000 }, { country: 'Russia', val: 146400000 }, { country: 'Japan', val: 126760000 }, { country: 'Mexico', val: 122273000 }, { country: 'Ethiopia', val: 104345000 }, { country: 'Philippines', val: 103906000 }, { country: 'Egypt', val: 92847800 }, ];

All of the values above can be applied to a horizontal axis, but only none and hide can be specified for a vertical axis.
