Formatting Labels for Charts

Introduction

You can set formatting of labels in charts for:

  • Value axis (usually, the vertical axis)
  • Values in charts
  • Labels of pie chart parts

The format is defined by the formatting string. For example, $Unknown block: VALUE will produce values with the '$' character at the beginning (for instance, $10, $12, $14 and so on).

The word in braces is called a tag. You can use several tags at the same time, for example: $Unknown block: VALUE, Unknown block: PERCENT% or Unknown block: VALUE|2 EUR, Unknown block: GPERCENT%.

The number inside the tag after the '|' character defines the number of digits after the comma.

Tags description

  • Unknown block: VALUE - displays the numeric value of the element (what is usually indicated on the vertical axis):

    This is the only tag that can be used on the value axis.
  • Unknown block: PERCENT - outputs the percentage of the displayed value to the sum of all values for the specified argument:
  • Unknown block: GPERCENT - outputs the percentage of the displayed value to the sum of all values for the whole chart:
  • Unknown block: XLABEL - outputs the argument name:
