Hi All,

I'm using an HBar from the RGraph toolkit and need to make way for very long x labels. Each label should wrap to a maximum of 4 lines. I've tried inserting relevant breaks (\r\n) within the label, and works fine for 2 lines of text. When the label flows to the 3rd line, the first two lines always overlap. Here is my code

<script type='text/javascript'>
         window.onload = function ()
               var hbar = new RGraph.HBar('myHbar', [[21],[96]]);
               hbar.Set('chart.grouping', 'grouped');
               hbar.Set('chart.colors', ['red', 'blue']);
               hbar.Set('chart.shadow', true);
               hbar.Set('chart.shadow.color', '#ccc');
               hbar.Set('chart.shadow.offsetx', 0);
hbar.Set('chart.shadow.offsety', 0);
hbar.Set('chart.shadow.blur', 15);
hbar.Set('chart.gutter.left', 120);
hbar.Set('', myClick);
hbar.Set('chart.xmax', 100);
hbar.Set('chart.strokestyle', 'rgba(0,0,0,0)');
hbar.Set('chart.key', ['Attempt 0']);
hbar.Set('', '%');
hbar.Set('chart.labels.above', true);
hbar.Set('chart.labels.above', true);
hbar.Set('chart.xlabels', false);
hbar.Set('chart.labels.above.decimals', 1);
hbar.Set('chart.background.grid', false);
hbar.Set('chart.labels', ['Long Category \r\nName for Standard \r\nCategory a little \r\nlonger ','Lead']);


Can some one please tell me how I can have upto 4 lines of wraped label text on a horizantal bar graphs x labels without overlapping. Much appreciated.

OK I've made an alteration in the way that multiline text is handled you should try the next beta and see if it helps you.
