Auto arrange labels, avoid overlap

Post by jorge » Fri Sep 09, 2016 1:30 pm

Hi,

I need to add some labels to a point series. Presumably I would need to use annotations. Is there a way of automatically arrange annotations (or other object that represents text) so it does no overlap with other annotations? Or this needs to be solved manually?

Thanks.

Hi,
The ViewXY have TitlesAutoPlacement properties tree, which you can use to manipulate Series' titles location. However, for Annotation objects someone need to calculate non-overlapping location himself. By the way, you could use SeriesEventMarker to show simple label (positioning them is very flexible).
