If I have a column in a chart with a value of "20", how do I show that value (e.g. sitting above the column)?

Can't see it anywhere and none of the demos show this...

In the demos, the value is present in the tooltip but my users might be far too lazy for that! They just want to see the value over each column.

Here's what I have in the context of Kendo for MVC Razor:
@using MyNamespace
 
@model Totals
            
@{
    ViewBag.Title = "Chart";
}
 
@(Html.Kendo().Chart<Totals>()
    .Name("chart")
    .Title("Totals")
    .DataSource(ds => ds.Read(read => read.Action("GetTotals", "Home")))
    .Series(series =>
    {
        series.Column(model => model.Total).Name("Total");
    })
)

Thanks!

Richard

Hi Richard,

To achieve the desired behavior you could configure the labels of the series. For example: 
@(Html.Kendo().Chart<Totals>()
    .Name("chart")
    .Title("Totals")
    .DataSource(ds => ds.Read(read => read.Action("GetTotals", "Home")))
    .Series(series =>
    {
        series.Column(model => model.Total).Name("Total").Labels(lables => lables.Visible(true));
    })
)

More detailed information about the Kendo UI Chart configuration options is available in our online documentation. Also, here is an online demo which illustrates the above mentioned approach in action.
