Seems that you are right : no way to change the text orientation in most LabVIEW indicators.
Except one : the picture indicator. There you can change the text orientation. And since the tools to create custom graphs have been provided (see the Graphics and Sound > Picture plots sub-palette), your problem can be solved, of course with some programing work.
Things could be more comfortable if NI developpers could spend some time to improve the LV graphs. BTW, there is still no simple way to change programatically a graph frame color. Or have I missed something ?
Here is a quick demo that is a bit more robust and picks-up on CC's suggestion.
It simply uses a picture control with a transparent background to hold the text labels.
It is in LV 8.0 but should be code-able back to 6.1.
This VI is suitable for use in creating an XControl.
