Hello Eli Schleifer,
Unfortunately the current version of the control does not provide proper support for sparse data scenarios (i.e. empty values) and at the moment it is not possible to hide the "zero" labels. We will do our best to introduce public API to control the labels visibility in this scenario for the next official release that is scheduled around mid-July.
Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.
