As I understand your question - you are asking how to rotate the chart label to display vertically.

You can rotate the x-axis label as follows:

chart1.ChartAreas[0].AxisX.LabelStyle.Angle = -90;

This assumes you have associated your series with the first chart area, which is the default without modification when using the Winforms designer.

The following images shows how the chart would look before the code above is applied, the second image shows how it appears after the code is applied.

Let me know if this is not what you are trying to do and I will post an updated answer.

Before rotation

Edit: Another answer added after my initial post mentions in certain situations it may be important to set chartArea1.AxisX.IsLabelAutoFit = false;
