  2. Hi,
    Is there any way I can highlight a particular point on a bar chat ? For example the above chart, Say I will have a small red line(vertical) on the first yellow bar with tooltip/label :”Second most gold : 400″.

  3. Is there any attribute through which I can show a label on hovering on a bar that is different from labels on x axis??

  4. When I need more than 11 labels/data entries in this type of chart, it shows all bars but not all labels in front of the bar.

    What can I do about it? Is it a display error?

    • I already fixed it… I’ve put the ‘interval: 1’ on the Axis-X and it shows all labels now.
