Platform: WinForms |

Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


The ChartFormatAxisLabel event can be handled to customize the labels for any axis. In the following code snippet "XX" is added to all labels along the X axis.


this.chartControl1.ChartFormatAxisLabel += new ChartFormatAxisLabelEventHandler(this.chartControl1_ChartFormatAxisLabelEventHandler);

 private void chartControl1_ChartFormatAxisLabelEventHandler(object sender, ChartFormatAxisLabelEventArgs args )


  if(args.IsAxisPrimary && args.AxisOrientation == Orientation.Horizontal)


    args.Label = args.Value.ToString() + "XX";

    args.Handled = true;





AddHandler Me.chartControl1.ChartFormatAxisLabel, AddressOf Me.chartControl1_ChartFormatAxisLabelEventHandler

Private Sub chartControl1_ChartFormatAxisLabelEventHandler(sender As Object, args As ChartFormatAxisLabelEventArgs)

    If args.IsAxisPrimary AndAlso args.AxisOrientation = Orientation.Horizontal Then

        args.Label = args.Value.ToString() + "XX"

        args.Handled = True

    End If

End Sub
