Property Name For Resize Data Label Shape To Fit Text of Clustered Bar DataLabels

Hi Team,

My clustered bar datalabels are getting overlapped with bar.

When I checked in excel for the respective property then I have seen " Resize Shape To Fit Text " under Size & Properties tab of data label properties.

I want to use this property through code.

Can you tell me the method name that can be used for this.

Please find the attached images for this issue.


Hi Sanjeev,

Thank you for contacting Aspose support.

Please try using the ChartFrame.setAutomaticSize method, and pass true as parameter. In case you still face any difficulty, please share the spreadsheet containing the problematic chart so we could investigate the matter to assist you further in this regard.


I have used the below lines of code as per your suggestion bu there is no change.

ChartFrame chartArea = sheet.getCharts().get(chartCount).getChartArea();
ChartFrame plotArea = sheet.getCharts().get(chartCount).getPlotArea();
dataLabels = sheet.getCharts().get(chartCount).getNSeries().get(seriesCount).getDataLabels();

Please find the attached excel sample for your reference.
