YFormat – Y-axis format-picture

Y-axis labels may be formatted with a simple picture format such as:

ch.Set 'ypic' '##0.00%'

To show the numbers to 2 decimal places with a trailing % symbol. Note that this does not automatically multiply the values by 100 (unlike VB and many OCX controls such as the Flexgrid).

Wrapping text labels
Text labels may be wrapped into a preset width with a format such as:

ch.Set 'ypic' 'XXXXXX;'

To force the labels to wrap at the length of the given string. If the string is simply ‘XXXXXXX’ then longer labels are truncated, and end with ‘...’ to indicate this.
