Text orientation in RectangleAnnotations

Nov 28, 2012 at 12:45 PM

is it possible, to add a text orientation feature to the RectangleAnnotation class?
I created a chart like the "horizontal bands example" but in my case with vertical bands and therefore it would be great to have vertical text...

Thank you for all
Best Regards

I added a "TextRotation" property. Try setting 90 or 270 degrees. The NuGet package will be updated later today, the build machine is currently powered off.

Thank you very much for your help. 

I downloaded OxyPlot.WindowsForms.2012.4.37.1 from today (Dec, 3rd) but cannot find this new TextRotation property. Is this the correct version or do I have to wait for another one?

Best Regards

Try version 2012.4.38.1, pushed to NuGet a few moments ago.

No luck. I installed 2012.4.38.1 and rebuild my project from scratch. But RectangleAnnotation has no TextRotation property. Maybe we are talking about different libraries? I am using the OxyPlot and OxyPlot.WindowsForms in a .NET 4.5 WindowsForms application.

Thanks again for all your help

Perfect. Exactly how I need it. I am looking forward to see the update on the NuGet server.

Thanks and best regards

Version 2012.4.38.1 and later should work. I tested in a WinForms 4.5 project without any issues.

I am using 2012.5.2.1 now and it works fine. Thank you very much...
