Data labels are the names you assign to data points on the X-axis. In FusionCharts.NET, apart from setting values for the data labels, you can also apply several types of formatting to them.

Customize Data Labels

In FusionCharts.NET, you can customize data labels in the following ways with the help of different instance methods of the LabelFormatting object (which accepts a string argument) under the Data object, which is in turn under the visualizationObj object:

Show/Hide Data Labels

To hide the data labels, set the value of the ShowLabel properties to false. Refer to the code given below:

visualizationObj.Data.Categories.CategoryFormatting("C#").ShowLabel("false");

Customize the font properties of the data label using the following:
