How to change the text displayed in axis labels?

Platform: ASP.NET MVC |
Control: Chart

The text displayed in axis labels can be customized using the client-side AxesLabelRendering event. Refer Chart Events  for more information about the events available in Chart. Refer AxesLabelRendering Event for more information about the options available in AxesLabelRendering event.

The Event Handler is provided an object containing properties cancel, data, model and type as parameter. The property data in parameter object has options to customize the text of axis labels. The following code snippet adds “$” as prefix and “K” as suffix to the labels in vertical axis.


<script type="text/javascript">
    //Client-side event handler to handle labels rendering event
    function LabelsRendering(sender) {
        if (sender.data.axis.orientation == 'vertical')
            //Adding prefix and suffix to axis labels
            sender.data.label.Text = '$'+sender.data.label.Text+' K';


The following screenshot displays Chart with the prefix and suffix for the primary Y axis labels added in AxesLabelRendering event.
