Is it possible to alter the position of the columns (and corresponding X-axis labels) in a column chart so that the columns are positioned between the ticks rather than centred on them?

I've attached an image that shows what I currently have, and a mock-up of what I'm trying to achieve.

Best regards,

Hi Gary,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. we don’t have direct support to move only the column and label.

We have property to move the Column with label and Tick mark.
this.chartControl1.PrimaryXAxis.PointOffset = 0.5;

But, We can meet this by drawing custom tick marks. This can be achieved by using 'this.chartControl1.PrimaryXAxis.PointOffset' property, 'this.chartControl1.ChartAreaPaint' event.

I have attached the sample for this.

Please let me know if this meets your requirement.

Hi Venkat,

That will meet our requirements.

Many thanks for taking the time to write the sample code.

Best regards,
