The Category Axis is used for representing data grouped by a set of discrete values along an axis. It defines a set of labels that appear along an axis of a chart. For example, charts that renders data according to City, Country and so on.

This sample demonstrates how to set custom categories of category axis.

For detailed implementation, please take a look at the HTML code tab.
