    Hello Telerik Team,

    I have an issue with showing the aggregate value in bar charts.

    Could I show the aggregate values of bars like the attachment shows?

    The attachment used another UI and I want to replace it with kendo UI.

    Thank you!

    Hello Lu,

    You can achieve this if you use a label template for your series that are placed on the top of the stack and bind the template to the stackValue template variable.
    seriesDefaults: {
      type: "column",
      stack: true
    series: [{
      field: "a",
      name: "a"
      field: "b",
      name: "b"
      field: "c",
      name: "c",
      labels: {
          template: "#= stackValue #",
          visible: true

    This article shows such an example:

    this works if the last series exists in every bar but what if only the second series defined or the first one is presented? how can i display the "stackValue" without relying on the last series?

    Hi Saeed,

    My name is Tsvetomir and I will be covering for my colleague Tsvetina.

    In general, the most straightforward way to tackle the issue is to always have all of the series. For the ones that you would like to not show, I can recommend setting a value of 0. Visually only 2 series would be shown. However, the label would be shown as if a third series was present.

    Alternatively, you would have to set the labels template for each of the series declarations and check which one should be used. For instance, if the third series is present, do not render labels for the other ones.

    I recommend that you utilize the first approach. However, in case additional clarifications are needed, feel free to contact me back.


    Kind regards,
    Progress Telerik
