graph: text rotation

graph: text rotation

graph: text rotation


I have a graph with bar groups and group labels. I'd like to have these labels running from left to right instead of from top to bottom. So I used
setTextRotation(getGroupLabel(0), 1);
But it doesn't work. Neither does setX1LabelRotate(1);

Does anyone know if there's a certain condition when these function can be used or what I've done wrong?


RE: graph: text rotation

Hi Eva,

The following works for me


it seems from your note that your referring to the X-axis as X (as would seem appropriate) but for most graph types in WebFOCUS (including bar charts) its referred to as the Ordinate axis hence the O above.



RE: graph: text rotation

Hello Tewy,

thanks a lot. I didn't know that X1 is mostly regarded as O1. That explains why many commands didn't work in my graphs. They all work with O1.
