Video: Show Chart Values without Hovering

One of the more annoying things about Xcelsius charts is its inability to show data lables. That is to say, you can’t see the values of each data point on a chart without hovering over each point. In this video, I show you how you can leverage one of Excel’s oldest tricks to actually show chart values without hovering. Even cooler than that, I show you that you can do this without adding a data grid, textbox or any other component to the chart visualization. That’s right, show chart values without the aid of any other components. Enjoy!!
