Thread: Bar chart customizing the X axis labels

  1. #1

    Default Bar chart customizing the X axis labels


    In my reports, I have created a bar chart: date(x axis) Vs No of registrations (Y axis).

    I have to show the no of registrations for every day graphically. The graph is working fine , but i'm not happy about the x xis labeling. It displays every date and it looks very clumsy. I tried displaying it in 60 degree but still it looks too close. Is it possible for me to display the data for all the days, but the date label at only fixed intervals? I am attaching a screen shot of the bar chart.

    If you want to display only the dates that have data, then why not switch from nominal scale to categorical scale. So get rid of your XY-chart and make it a normal bar-chart instead.

    The trick is to use the right tool for the right question.
