How to rotate axis labels?

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejChart |

ejChart provides options to rotate x axis labels to any desired angle. You can use these option for labels with long text and to avoid labels overlapping with each other. The labelRotation API is used to rotate labels. It takes integer value as input. The following code example illustrates the above.


        title: { text: 'Countries' },
        //Rotating labels by 45 degrees
        labelRotation : 45
