too many x axis values

Post by veloopity » Thu Jul 11, 2019 8:26 am

My line charts can have hundreds of values on the x axis. Labels need to be displayed for the x axis but if ALL of them are displayed, the result is undecipherable. Can x axis labels be skipped programmatically?

Given a CategoryAxis, try setTickLabelsVisible or setCategoryLabelPositions with the desired position; alternatively, consider a SlidingCategoryDataset.
