Chart ellipsis issue

Motivator

Hey,

I am trying to change the following default behaviour spotted on charts in my Splunk instance:

alt text

Sometimes when a chart has many cells in it, the cell labels change so that you cannot see the name of the cells in their entirety. I want to be able to see the full name 'PQRST4' and not a name with an ellipsis in the middle 'P...4'.

How can I change the behaviour so that an ellipsis does not appear at all? Additionally, how could I change the alignment of a cell label so that it is not horizontal as shown above but it is say vertical instead or at a different angle where the ellipsis will not be seen?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't know if you can directly change those, but this might help:

You could perhaps change the width of the bars, for example.

Update: Looks like you could control the ellipses, via the overflowMode property of the majorLabelStyle

Thanks gkanapathy. I have managed to find a different property that works for me at the moment.

Out of interest, what property did you find/use?
