I have made a report with a bar graph. It works really well, but the labels on the bottom are running into each other. Is there a way to have the label data to appear vertical instead of horizontal? If the report editor isn't able to do this, maybe this would be a good feature to add.

Thanks

Hi Trevor,

Right, currently there's no way to do it in the Report Editor.
I think we'll add in one of the next releases, thank you.

I have downloaded and installed version 7. This is the version I was told would have the ability to change graph labels to vertical. I can't see where this can be done.:D

Hello Trevor,

1. Select chart control
2. Change property "gnuplot" in the "Scripts" section to "set xtics rotate"

GnuPlot - is a library that currently is used for charts.

Thanks, this is great.

It would also be good to be able to set the angle, eg "set xtics rotate=45" for 45degress or what ever angle is required.
:D :) :D

For Info

- gnu plot is C library, which our dev have plug with big efforts.
- we cannot update it easy.

We going todo:

- improve integration of JS
- allow to use a third party JS Graph library to replace gnu plot.

ETA - is not known.

Rotate by angle works too, but it is necessary to set bottom offset of the X axis labels to fit them.

For example, to fit date values mm/dd/yyyy I set:
set xtics rotate by 45 offset -0.8,-3
set bmargin 4

Hi Trevor,

Currently this format is not well controlled on chart, so it is better to format date as string in the SQL.

What database do you use?
I know MySQL has such function.
