How to set the custom labels with auto range for axis?

Platform: WPF |
Control: SfChart |
Published Date: December 23, 2015 |
Last Revised Date: June 27, 2019


This article describes how to set the custom labels for the axis when we do not specify the range explicitly, i.e., without specifying minimum and maximum values.Solution:

This requirement can be achieved by adding custom labels based on the position of visible labels in ActualRangeChanged event.



 <!--Hooked ActualRangeChangedEvent-->


<chart:NumericalAxis ActualRangeChanged="NumericalAxis_ActualRangeChanged"/>                         




private void NumericalAxis_ActualRangeChanged(object sender, Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Charts.ActualRangeChangedEventArgs e)


            var axis = sender as NumericalAxis;


            //Gets the collection of visible labels.

            var labels = axis.VisibleLabels;


            if (labels != null)


                if (axis.CustomLabels.Count > 0)



                //To add the custom labels based on the position of visible labels.

                for (int index = 0; index < labels.Count; index++)


                    var axisLabel = new ChartAxisLabel()


                        Position = labels[index].Position,//To set the position where the custom label should be placed.


                        LabelContent = "Item" + index//To set the content from which labels are to be taken.









The following screenshot illustrates the custom labels based on the range in y-axis.
