4/// Example illustrating how to modify individual labels of a TGaxis. The method
5/// `ChangeLabel` allows to do that.
7/// The first parameter of this method is the label number to be modified. If
8/// this number is negative labels are numbered from the last one. The other
9/// parameters are (in order):
10/// - the new angle value,
11/// - the new size (0 erase the label),
12/// - the new text alignment,
13/// - the new label color,
14/// = the new label text.
