Hello, I am evaluating your product and would like to know if there is a way to use superscript or subscript characters in the titles on the chart. We use chemical terminology that we would like to represent. For example we would represent Phosphorus as PO4-P and the 4 would be a subscript character.

Hi Michael,

It is possible to template the Axis Title to put any WPF Control in there, so if you can create a simple control or group of WPF controls that represent your title with superscript, then you can place it in an axis title.

To find out how, please see Styling Axis Labels, Axis Titles, Rotating Axis Labels

How to Template the Axis Title

To insert a custom Control into the Axis Title, you can use this code

<Style x:Key="BottomAxisTitleStyle" TargetType="s:AxisTitle">
    <Setter Property="ContentTemplate">
                    <TextBlock Margin="0,3,0,0" FontSize="9" Text="Showing time on"/>
                    <TextBlock HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center" Text="XAxis"/>
                    <TextBlock Margin="0,0,0,3" FontSize="9" Text="(daily Timeframe)"/>
<s:DateTimeAxis TitleStyle="{StaticResource BottomAxisTitleStyle}" />

Hope this helps!

Best regards,
