Axes Title and Label fields can be rotated on the YUI Charts Control by setting the titleRotation and labelRotation axis styles. This example shows you how.
Please note: The YUI Charts Control requires Flash Player 9.0.45 or higher. The latest version of Flash Player is available at the Adobe Flash Player Download Center.
We will start by adding our data for the charts.
Next we'll add a series to our chart, and give it a style.
In the styles for our x-axis and y-axis, we'll set the corresponding
titleRotation to -90. This will make the title on the y-axis and the labels on the x-axis to be rotated -90 degrees (counterclockwise). While both styles accept values between -90 and 90, it is generally recomended to only use the values -90, 90 or 0 (default), as text fields will display more clearly at these settings.
Add our axes and label formatting methods.
Finally, we'll add the chart and call it good.
There are even more styles available for the axes than we've covered in this tutorial. For full details about the axes styles, read the Charts Control User's Guide.
Note: Logging and debugging is currently turned off for this example.
All YUI 2.x users should review the YUI 2.8.2 security bulletin, which discusses a vulnerability present in YUI 2.4.0-2.8.1.
