How to define custom axis ticker labels?

In SfChart, we can define custom axis ticker label in following two ways:

1)We can define the ticker label by using the LabelsSource, ContentPath, and PositionPath properties of a chart axis. In the following sample, DataValues is the observablecollection, which contains the label content and position values of chart axes. The LabelsSource property binds the collection of DataValues. The ContentPath property is to specify the collection, and the PositionPath property defines the position of the chart axis.


 <!—Custom x-axis ticker labels -->
                <Syncfusion:CategoryAxis FontSize="12" LabelsSource="{Binding DataValues}" ContentPath="ContentX" PositionPath="PositionX">
<!—Custom y-axis ticker labels -->
                <Syncfusion:NumericalAxis FontSize="12" LabelsSource="{Binding DataValues}" ContentPath=" ContentY" PositionPath=" PositionY">

2)Using chart axis CustomLabels, we can define the ticker label of custom x-axis and y-axis as shown in the following code.


 <!—Custom x-axis ticker labels -->
                <Syncfusion:CategoryAxis FontSize="12" >
                    < Syncfusion:CategoryAxis.CustomLabels>
                        < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel LabelContent="Sonata" Position="0" />
                        < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel LabelContent="Titan" Position="1" />
                        < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel LabelContent="Fastrack" Position="2" />
                        < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel LabelContent="Timex" Position="3" />
                        < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel LabelContent="Rolex" Position="4" />
                        < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel LabelContent="Omega" Position="5" />
                        < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel LabelContent="Maruti" Position="6" />
                    </ Syncfusion:CategoryAxis.CustomLabels>
<!—Custom y-axis ticker labels -->
< Syncfusion:SfChart.SecondaryAxis>
        < Syncfusion:NumericalAxis  FontSize="12" >
           < Syncfusion:NumericalAxis.CustomLabels>
              < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel Position="0" LabelContent="Item 0"/>
              < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel Position="500" LabelContent="Item 1"/>
              < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel Position="1000" LabelContent="Item 2"/>
              < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel Position="1500" LabelContent="Item 3"/>
              < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel Position="2000" LabelContent="Item 4"/>
              < Syncfusion:ChartAxisLabel Position="2500" LabelContent="Item 5"/>
          </ Syncfusion:NumericalAxis.CustomLabels>
  </ Syncfusion:SfChart.SecondaryAxis>
