Earlier this week I blogged about an issue with ColdFusion charting and scaling to decimal points. While working on the solution, I did a small tweak to the x-axis to the turn the labels vertical. Why? Look what happens when there isn’t enough room for the x-axis labels:
Things get scrunchy and random labels are dropped. Changing them to a vertical orientation helps, but what if you don’t want vertical labels?
I discovered another option - oddly placed (odd to me anyway) in the “Group” section of the x-axis area in the cart editor:
Skip labels does pretty much what is says - skips labels. Setting it to 1 means it will skip every other label. So using the same data we did from the previous blog entry, I modified the style xml like so:
This results in:
Which I think is a nice alternative. Here is the vertical version for comparison:
Anyway, I hope this helps someone.
