Is there a way to control/force the width for the vertical axis labels so that a label stays readable?
Currently my labels are short sentences that get resized down to an illegible font size while the bars (series) stay quite large.
It would be ok for the bars (series) to be squashed so that the labels stay readable.
I have been searching for a couple of hours but cannot find a way to do this. Specifying a fontSize="xx" on the <mx:AxisRenderer> for the vertical axis seems to have no effect (nor does specifying the font size in the CSS). I have also tried setting "minWidth" and "width" to no avail...
Well by chance I found this forum posting through a search engine query:
It explains that you need to set the gutter style properties to accomodate longer lines of text. In this case,
in the BarChart style did it for me.
It would be nice if an axis label could be wrapped onto two or more lines if needed but the solution above works for now...
