Size too small of the data values displayed in a Vizlib Bar Chart

Hi community!

I am facing a problem with a Vizlib component : Vizlib Bar Chart (Version 3.2.1). I wanted to display the data values (the measure) next to each bar (the red circles in the screenshot "DataValues"). However, as you can see, their size is too small and I don't find the parameter in the component properties to change the font size. So, I tried to access to the properties of the component with the developer options (I added /options/developer in the URL), and I changed a property under "properties" and it worked (see the screenshot "Size"). Here is my question : Will the property that I changed be the same with an upgrade of the component ? I mean if we do this in a production environment and we change the property from there, do we have the insurance that the component will never changer after an upgrade ? The new values won't get overwritten by the default ones after the upgrade ? If it does, can you suggest another solution for me to make the size of the data values bigger ? Thank you in advance.

  • Hi Aziz,

    I hope you're well.

    Sadly any changes made to the properties section are temporary, and once you update it the changes will no longer appear.

    May I recommend in the Appearance --> Bar Data Values Formatting section, you set the Font Size Scale to Large (L)

    I believe this will be a more permanent solution across multiple versions of the Vizlib Bar Chart. 

    Also as you'd like to set a custom font size, I would recommend adding this as a feature request in our community here.
