Can't get charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.rotation to work.

I've run into the problem where the X axis labels of my charts are being shortened by ellipsis because they are too long so I want to have them displayed vertically.

I've read, in the answers to other questions, that the solution is to use the option "charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.rotation" and set it to 90.

This isn't working for me, I still get horizontal lables shortened by ellipsis. Any thoughts on how I can get my labels to be displayed vertically?

P.S. I couldn't get the XML for my dashboard to display correctly that's why I didn't include it.

"charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.rotation" is only supported by the FlashChart renderer. My guess is you're using the JSChart renderer, so you'll need to switch.

If you're in Advanced XML, you can just change <module name="JSChart"> to <module name="FlashChart">.

If you're in Simple XML, try this: http://splunk-base.splunk.com/answers/38135/version-43-using-flash-charting-instead-of-jschart

This is no longer true. FlashChart/AdvancedXML are now deprecated, and majorLabelStyle.rotation will work just fine in highcharts/splunkjs/simplexml.

I am facing the same issue. But i had to move from FlashCharts to JS Charts as the former weren't supported by Splunk's PDF Report Server Add on. So is there any other workaround for this?
