Description

How can I place a label with the stack total on top of column or bar Chart series?

Solution

Starting with the 2016 R3 release, a stackValue field is available in the label template, the series visual, and the event arguments.

It is possible to use this configuration to display the cumulative point value for stacked series.

    <div id="chart"></div>
    <script>
      $(function(){
        $("#chart").kendoChart({
          dataSource:{
            data:[{
              a: 22,
              b: 11,
              c: 33
            },{
              a: 2,
              b: 1,
              c: 3
            }]
          },
          seriesDefaults: {
            type: "column",
            stack: true
          },
          series: [{
            field: "a",
            name: "a"
          },{
            field: "b",
            name: "b"
          },{
            field: "c",
            name: "c",
            labels: {
                template: "#= stackValue #",
                visible: true
            }
          }]
        });
      });
    </script>
