Point value

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I have hanging bars i.e.

I set the start value in IniValue

and the "upper value" in Value

My problem is that I would like to display the "real value" = Value -


I have set that in the data column

I have tried setting the pointLabelMask but can't get the value I have in

the data column

aChart.PointLabelMask ="%v"; // gives me the Value

aChart.PointLabelMask ="%i"; // gives me the Inivalue

Question is there a way to display thes value in the data column ?!?!

This is what I found about the mask values

Yes. Both the tooltip and the point label can be customized using an event. 

There a GetTip event and a GetPointLabel event.

Notice that this sample is for using the client control and it is for Chart

FX 5.x, you must capture the event server-side if you are generating an

image, also, check the docs. for these events in Chart FX 6 as minor changes

have occurred.
