XLSIO - Category Axis Labels On Tick Marks


I have been unable to find the basic chart setting where the category axis labels (x-asis) are placed on the tick marks themselves instead of between tick marks, see illustrations below. In Excel 2016 this option is under Axis Options-->Axis Position-->On Tick Marks. Is this possible? I am using a line chart as an example in my code. Thank you!

Hi, just a note that despite my best efforts, the illustrations below did not come out as planned. But hopefully any potential responders know what I'm talking about.

Hi Eric, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
Yes, you can change the axis label position by using PrimaryCategoryAxis.IsBetween property in XlsIO. Please refer the following code example to achieve this. 
Code snippet: 
chart.PrimaryCategoryAxis.IsBetween = false; 
Please let us know if you have any concern.
