How can I make a column label vertical not horizontal

I have a column chart where each of the bars is labelled using:

uxChart.Series[index].Style.DisplayText = true; uxChart.Series[index].Style.TextOrientation = ChartTextOrientation.RegionCenter;

This displays horizontal text in the middle of the bar. However the text is wider than the bar and I would like it to be orientated vertically along the bar.

How can I do this from code?

Hi Matthew,

To customize the orientation of Chart point's text, use the below code

series1.Style.Font.Orientation = 270; // Customizing all the points orientation
series1.Styles[index].Font.Orientation = 270; // Customizing individual points orientation

Please refer the below documentation links for more details on Text customization.
