Styling point labels

In order to show series default labels you should set the showLabels property of each series to true. By default its value is false. If you want to style the point labels that are shown for series values you can initialize the labelStyle property of the series with instance of PointLabelStyle.
Supported properties are:

  • fillColor: the point label background fill color
  • strokeColor: the color of the label stroke
  • margin: the margin of label
  • textFormat: the string used as a formating string for label value. This format must comply to IEEE printf Specification
  • textColor: the label font color
  • textSize: the size of label font
  • fontName: the font name. If it is missing from the OS the default font is used instead.
  • fontStyle: specify the style of font. Bold , Italic , BoldItalic and Normal values can be used. Defaults to Normal


To better illustrate styling of point label let's look at the following example:

  • Declare the LineSeries instances, bind their items to the source of data and set the tkCartesianSeries directive
  • In order to customize the labelStyle open and close an PointLabelStyle tag between the LineSeries tags and set the tkLineLabelStyle directive on it
<LineSeries tkCartesianSeries legendTitle="Financial data" showLabels="true" seriesName="Bar" valueProperty="Amount" categoryProperty="Country"
    <PointLabelStyle tkLineLabelStyle margin="10" fontStyle="Bold" fillColor="#60B3FC" textSize="10" textColor="White"></PointLabelStyle>

<LineSeries tkCartesianSeries legendTitle="Financial data" showLabels="true" seriesName="Bar" valueProperty="SecondVal" categoryProperty="Country"
    <PointLabelStyle tkLineLabelStyle margin="10" fontStyle="Bold" fillColor="#FC6060" textSize="10" textColor="White"></PointLabelStyle>

This is how the chart looks like now:
