Legend Position

Trying to use the Legend.setY(float) method and it’s not doing anything at all. Legend stays in the same place.


Thanks in advance.

Hi Shaun,


Thank you for your interest in Aspose.Slides.

It doesn’t help.


I want to position the legend to the left using:

legend.setPosition(LegendPositionType.Left);

Then I want to move it to the top left by calling:

legend.setY(0); // As a fraction of chart height will equal 0.

So I want to leave the width and height at the best-fit values and only change the Y position.

I suspect this isn’t possible.

What I really want is a method that Aspose.Cells has for charts called calculate().

Any chance of logging that as a feature request? It would do exactly the same thing.

If element positions are auto assigned (like legends, axes, chart area, etc) it calculates the positions and then you can move them around and do calculations based on the size.
