    Dear Kendo Community,

    I'm working with different Kendo Charts for a while and they fulfil all the requirements so far. But currently I run into a use case where I need your help.

    I use a stacked and grouped bar chart exactly like the example here:

    Is it possible to display the labels (stack name) for each column? This means below every pink column it should say "Female" and for the blue ones "Male".
    Underneath these labels it should then display the year as it already does.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Feyzi,

    This outcome is not supported out-of-the-box by Kendo UI Chart. As a workaround I would suggest the following:
    - Display only series.labels for "0-19" for both stacks;
    - Move these labels below the bars (using margin / padding). You could also use the visual feature from the drawing API to draw labels where you need;
    - Move the categoryAxis.labels ( below.
