Overlapping xAxis labels #193

If you set xAxis label align to left, last label sometime overlaps. Here is an example: (try to resize result area)

Forum thread:


There's no logic in Highcharts to prevent overlapping. The user must set a tickInterval high enough to prevent it, slant the labels or apply staggerLines...


Is there a way to access the xAxis labels from the load event to check for collisions after rendering? e.g. Check if the x position of a label is within x + width of the previous label.

If this is possible then I could choose to re-render my chart with stagger or slant enabled.


Overlapping avoidance was added in Highcharts 3.0.8.
