position of ... series2.IsValueShownAsLabel = true; c#

The following line of code

series2.IsValueShownAsLabel = true;      

shows the data values for series2 above the line (default setting I guess).

70_____________________________________________________________     <-- above the line

Question: How can I make the value position on the line or below the line as shown below:

70-----------------------------------------------------------------------          <-- on the line
______________________________________________________________         <-- below the line

Thank you.

You use CustomProperties on series or point for that, for example:
series2.IsValueShownAsLabel = true;
series2.CustomProperties = "LabelStyle=Center";
series2.Points[0].CustomProperties = "LabelStyle=Bottom";

Open in new window

Description of LabelStyle:  / http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd489245(v=vs.110).aspx 
All custom properties (note that not all are available for column chart): http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd456764(v=vs.110).aspx

I see in your other new question that you were already close to a solution but using BarLabelStyle, which is for use in a bar chart.
Also, it's important to note that SmartLabelStyle must be disabled so for example:
                chart.Series["Default2"].SmartLabelStyle.Enabled = false;
                chart.Series["Default2"]["LabelStyle"] = "Center";  // This will change Label Position
                chart.Series["Default2"].LabelAngle = 90;    // This will rotate Data Label

Open in new window

So that second line is one of the alternative ways to set a Custom Property, maybe a bit nicer than what I did in my initial post on this question.
