SharpPlot.KeyFormat Property

Set a picture format for key text.

public string KeyFormat {get; set;}


sp.KeyFormat = "XXXXXXXX;";

To force the text to wrap into the space allowed for 8 ‘X’ characters. If the picture does not end with a semi-colon, the text will be truncated if necessary and terminated with an ellipsis character (→) to indicate that it has been clipped.

If you set Keytext to a an array of numbers (perhaps the categories represent numeric product codes) you can give a normal numeric formatter here such as “P0000” to create the text for the legend.
