Text inside a bar in a bar chart

Hi Qlik Gurus,

I was just wondering if it's possible to display some kind of text inside a bar in a bar chart.

The text is common for all the bars and has no calculation or anything like that.

Suggestions greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Sachin

Yeah that is what I want, but I already have a calculation for those bars as well.

Can you send me a sample?

Ya you just need to add another expression -> 'FORECAST'. I have made updates to my previous post above

Hi Sunny,

I like the idea but its creating some new issues in my case. I made a few bars invisible. But the text becomes enabled for those bars too and secondly I want the actual vales on data points as well.

Appreciate your prompt and quick reply.

Swerving you question, I would just put the word Forecast once in the Chart Title.

Repeating it in every bar is, to my eye, chartjunk as Edward Tufte would say.
