Axes Properties

Axes properties define settings for X and Y axes shown in the chart.

Note: Y can have only number format, X can have number, date and time format.

First define X axis properties. Enter X axis label. If X axis has “datetime” type, you can enter X axis tick label format. Check the box “Show X axis labels” to show values of X axes (for bar and line types). Check the box “Autoscale axis” to scale it automatically (maximum and minimum values will be defined automatically). Select color for displayed X axis.

Note: dates can be passed into the axis in almost any recognizable value and will be parsed.  They will be rendered on the axis in the format specified by tickOptions.formatString.  e.g. tickOptions.formatString = ‘%Y-%m-%d’.

Acceptable format codes are:

%Y 2008 Four-digit year

If X axis has number format, you can define custom labels in the chart. Just select field for X axis data labels.

Then define parameters for Y axis (label, autoscaling, color). Check the box “Show Y axis labels” to show Y values on chart (for bar and line types).

*Note: Y axis can have only positive values in charts of Pie type. *

Moreover, it is allowed to define font settings for axes labels. Move down to “Axis labels font settings” and define font size in pixels, font color and axes labels position. The position is defined according to chosen axis labels position. For instance, if you need to define it more accurately.

Click “OK” to finish or “Apply” to save the settings and continue adjustment.
