How to add another expression as text on a bar-chart?

Hello,

In QV, I used to add some information as text on bar charts.

Eg:

2015-01-21_091643.png

Is there a way to do the same thing with QlikSense?

I only succeed to display the value of the bar, not another expression (even if I use a "dual" expression).

Thank you.

Hi Nicolas,

Sorry I misunderstood your original post.  Currently what you are describing is not a feature of Qlik Sense.  We are working to continuously improve Qlik Sense (there will be 3 feature releases every year).  You also may want to check out Qlik Branch to see if anyone has created an extension with this functionality.

Hi Nicolas,

Take a look under Appearance->Presentation for "Show labels on data points".  One thing to note is Qlik Sense uses responsive design so if you do not have enough space to show the labels, they will be automatically remove to avoid clutter.  When you expand the chart or use a larger screen the labels will automatically appear.

The option "Show labels on data points" will display the value used to define the bar width.

I would like to display something else.

In my snapshot, the values are "14.3%", "9.4%", "8.3%", ... But instead of showing only this value, I want to show "14.3 (based on 13 157 values)", 9.4% (based on8 607 values)", ...

In QlikView, I use

dual([expression to be displayed on data point], [expression to define the bar width])

but it doesn't work on QlikSense.
