Label Format

Format Numeric labels

By using the labelFormat property, you can format the numeric labels. Numeric values can be formatted with n (number with decimal points), c (currency) and p (percentage) commands.

<ej-pivotchart [primaryYAxis]="primaryYAxis">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public primaryYAxis;
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.primaryYAxis = { labelFormat: 'c' };
    }
}

Following table describes the result on applying some commonly used label formats on numeric values.

Label Value Label Format Property Value Result Description
1000 n1 1000.0 The Number is rounded to 1 decimal place
1000 n2 1000.00 The Number is rounded to 2 decimal place
1000 n3 1000.000 The Number is rounded to 3 decimal place
0.01 p1 1.0% The Number is converted to percentage with 1 decimal place
0.01 p2 1.00% The Number is converted to percentage with 2 decimal place
0.01 p3 1.000% The Number is converted to percentage with 3 decimal place
1000 c1 $1,000.0 The Currency symbol is appended to number and number is rounded to 1 decimal place
1000 c2 $1,000.00 The Currency symbol is appended to number and number is rounded to 2 decimal place

Label Format Customization

By using the labelFormat property of primaryYAxis, you can add the category labels with prefix and/or suffix.

<ej-pivotchart [primaryYAxis]="primaryYAxis">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public primaryYAxis;
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.primaryYAxis = { labelFormat: '${value} K' };
    }
}

Common Axis Features

Axis Visibility

Axis visibility can be set by using the visible property of the respective axis.

NOTE

By default, the value of visible property is true in PivotChart.

<ej-pivotchart [primaryYAxis]="primaryYAxis">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public primaryYAxis;
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.primaryYAxis = { visible: false };
    }
}

Label Customization

By using the font property of the axis, we can customize the labels – font family, color, opacity, size and font-weight.

<ej-pivotchart [primaryXAxis]="primaryXAxis">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public primaryXAxis;
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.primaryXAxis = { font:
            {
                fontFamily: 'Segoe UI',
                size: '14px',
                fontWeight: 'bold',
                color: 'blue'
            } 
        };
    }
}

Label and Tick Positioning

Axis labels and ticks can be positioned inside or outside the Chart area by using the AxislabelPosition and TickLinesPosition properties. The labels and ticks are positioned outside the Chart area, by default.

<ej-pivotchart [primaryXAxis]="primaryXAxis">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public primaryXAxis;
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.primaryXAxis = { 
            labelPosition: 'inside',
            tickLinesPosition: 'inside'
        };
    }
}

Grid Lines Customization

By using the MajorGridLines and MinorGridLines properties of the axis, you can customize the width, color, visibility and opacity of the grid lines.

NOTE

By default, the minor grid lines are not visible in PivotChart.

<ej-pivotchart [primaryXAxis]="primaryXAxis">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public primaryXAxis;
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.primaryXAxis = { 
            //Customizing Grid Lines
            majorGridLines:
            {
                color: 'blue',
                visible: true,
                width: 5
            },
            minorTicksPerInterval: 1,
            minorGridLines:
            {
                color: 'red',
                visible: true,
                width: 5
            }
        };
    }
}

Tick Line Customization

By using the majorTickLines and minorTickLines properties of the axis, you can customize the width, color, visibility, size and opacity of the tick lines.

NOTE

By default, the minor tick lines are not visible in PivotChart.

<ej-pivotchart [primaryXAxis]="primaryXAxis">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public primaryXAxis;
    constructor() {
      //..
      this.primaryXAxis = { 
            //Customizing Tick Lines
            majorTickLines:
            {
                color: 'blue',
                visible: true,
                width: 10,
                size: 15,
            },
            minorTicksPerInterval: 1,
            minorTickLines:
            {
                color: 'red',
                visible: true,
                width: 20,
                size: 15
            }
        };
    }
}

Inversing Axis

Axis can be inversed by using the IsInversed property of the axis.

NOTE

By default, the IsInversed property is false in PivotChart.

<ej-pivotchart [primaryXAxis]="primaryXAxis" [primaryYAxis]="primaryYAxis">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public primaryYAxis;primaryXAxis;
    constructor() {
      //..
        this.primaryXAxis = {
            //Inversing the X-axis
            isInversed: true
        };
        this.primaryYAxis = { 
            //Inversing the Y-axis
            isInversed: true
        };
    }
}

Placing Axes at Opposite Side

The OpposedPosition property of Chart axis can be used to place the axis at the opposite direction from its default position.

NOTE

By default, the OpposedPosition property is false in PivotChart.

<ej-pivotchart [primaryXAxis]="primaryXAxis" [primaryYAxis]="primaryYAxis">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public primaryYAxis;primaryXAxis;
    constructor() {
      //..
        this.primaryXAxis = {
            //Placing X-axis at the opposite side of its normal position
            opposedPosition: true
        };
        this.primaryYAxis = { 
            //Placing Y-axis at the opposite side of its normal position
            opposedPosition: true
        };
    }
}

Smart Axis Labels

When the axis labels overlap with each other based on the Chart dimensions and label size, you can use LabelIntersection property of the axis to avoid overlapping.

NOTE

By default, the LabelIntersection property is none in PivotChart.

The following options that are supported for LabelIntersection property are:

  • Rotate45
  • Rotate90
  • Trim
  • MultipleRows
  • Wrap
  • Hide.
<ej-pivotchart [primaryXAxis]="primaryXAxis">
</ej-pivotchart>
//..

export class PivotChartComponent {
    public primaryXAxis;
    constructor() {
      //..
        this.primaryXAxis = {
            labelIntersectAction: 'multipleRows'
        };
    }
}
