    Hello Varun,

    feel free to take a look at our extensions - http://visualbi.com/DSXTrial.

    what you are asking for is a standard feature in all our charts.

    regards

    Could you clarify "rotate chart"? Because if it is a bar chart I would simply change to a column chart...

    Also include some screen shots using the camera icon of how you tried this - also see

      Other people would that better than me 😊

      Transforms on SVG Elements | CSS-Tricks

      Basically, with CSS, your browser can modify the display of the item and move/rotate them (but not only).

      The only downside with this approach about IE is CSS transformations are not supported on SVG, bt do with direct attributes on the element itself, which renders it "impossible" in DS.

    HI Varun,

    There is one option which rotates the labels in vertical fashion but not the way you are expecting.

    Try the option in chart

    Format chart --> Category axis--> Orientation --> Vertical Lettering

    By default this will be Automatic, but you can change it.

    If it is automatic then angle will be taken care based on the data where as if you keep vertical then the data comes

    2 2

    0 0

    0 0

    1 2

    instead of 2001 2002 for a year dimension
