grDispAttr objects in a graph control


This property specifies the rotation for the baseline of the Axis text objects in a graph control.


In a painter

To set the rotation of text objects within a graph:

  1. Display the Text tab of the graph's Properties view.

  2. Select the desired text object from the Text Object list box.

  3. Use the Escapement spin control to set the desired value.

In scripts

Escapement takes an integer value that specifies the rotation in tenths of a degree. 0 is horizontal. A value of 900 rotates the text 90 degrees; 450 rotates the text 45 degrees. The following example sets the rotation of the Value Axis Label to 90 degrees:

gr_1.Value.LabelDispAttr.Escapement = 900
