amCharts 5: Is is possible to rotate axes tick labels?

Is is possible to rotate axes tick labels in amCharts 5? E.g.

enter image description here

I am unable to find this mentioned anywhere in the new amCharts 5 documentation. This was possible in amCharts 4.


This can be achieved by setting the rotation property on the relevant axis-renderer’s labels.template, eg:

const xAxisRenderer =, {});

  rotation: -45,

const xAxis = chart.xAxes.push(, {
    renderer: xAxisRenderer ,
    categoryField: 'category-name-here',
