Gets or sets the LabelStyle properties of an axis.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting
Assembly:  System.Web.DataVisualization (in System.Web.DataVisualization.dll)

public LabelStyle LabelStyle { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.LabelStyle

A LabelStyle object, which defines the axis label style.

Use this property to specify the style, formatting, and so forth, of axis labels.

If the IsLabelAutoFit property is true, the font size, font angle and the use of offset labels are determined automatically. If you set any one of the LabelStyle.Font.Size, Angle or IsStaggered properties, the IsLabelAutoFit property will be set to false.

Note that if a format that consists of a date without a time is used for labels, and the DateTime data point values that are used specify times, the times will affect the positions of the data points, even though they are not displayed due to the label formatting.
