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.

  • html
  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    $(function () {
        var sample = new ej.PivotChart($("#PivotChart1"), { 
    		primaryYAxis: {
    		 	labelFormat: "c" 
    		 },
    	});
    });

    Following table describes the result when 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.

  • html
  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    $(function () {
        var sample = new ej.PivotChart($("#PivotChart1"), { 
    		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 the pivot chart.

  • html
  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    $(function () {
        var sample = new ej.PivotChart($("#PivotChart1"), { 
    		primaryYAxis: {
    		 	visible: false
    		 },
    	});
    });

    Label customization

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

  • html
  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    $(function () {
        var sample = new ej.PivotChart($("#PivotChart1"), { 
    		primaryXAxis: {
                font: {
                    size: "20px",
                    color: "blue",
                    fontWeight: "bold",
                    fontFamily:"Segoe UI"
                }
            },
    	});
    });

    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.

  • html
  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    $(function () {
        var sample = new ej.PivotChart($("#PivotChart1"), { 
    		primaryXAxis: {
                axislabelPosition: "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 the pivot chart.

  • html
  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    $(function () {
        var sample = new ej.PivotChart($("#PivotChart1"), { 
    		primaryXAxis: {
                majorGridLines: {
                    width: 5,
                    color: 'blue',
                    visible:true
                },
                minorGridLines: {
                    width: 25,
                    color: 'red',
                    visible: true
                },
                minorTicksPerInterval: 1
            },
    	});
    });

    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 the pivot chart.

  • html
  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    $(function () {
        var sample = new ej.PivotChart($("#PivotChart1"), { 
    		primaryXAxis: {
                majorTickLines: {
                    width: 10,
                    size: 15,
                    color: 'blue',
                    visible:true
                },
                minorTickLines: {
                    width: 15,
                    size: 25,
                    color: 'red',
                    visible: true
                },
                minorTicksPerInterval: 1
            },
    	});
    });

    Inversing axis

    The axis can be inversed by using the isInversed property of the axis.

    NOTE

    By default, the isInversed property is false in the pivot chart.

  • html
  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    $(function () {
        var sample = new ej.PivotChart($("#PivotChart1"), { 
    		primaryYAxis: {
                isInversed: true
            },
            primaryXAxis: {
                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 the pivot chart.

  • html
  • /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    $(function () {
        var sample = new ej.PivotChart($("#PivotChart1"), { 
    		primaryYAxis: {
                opposedPosition: true
            },
            primaryXAxis: {
                opposedPosition: true
            },
    	});
    });
