Centering the labels of the legend when too long

Post by SimOOn » Thu Nov 27, 2008 2:37 pm

When the labels of my legend are too long and can't fit on a single line, they aren't not centered any more.

Example :

Is there a solution to solve this or is it a bug ?

I have been looking for a solution to make it work in the documentation and in the API but I haven't been able to solve that problem.

Has anyone an idea to fix it ?
Thanks a lot.

Alas, this is not a solution but a workaround.
You can move labels a little with this code

Code: Select all

chart.getLegend().setPadding(new RectangleInsets(UnitType.RELATIVE,0,0.1,0,0));
