1465588 - label display in horizontal/vertical bullet chart in Xcelsius


  • When mouse hovering on bullet chart, the default 'performance' and 'comparative' labels are shown instead of the data series information as displayed in other charts.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In Xcelsius, place a horizontal bullet chart on the canvas
  2. Bind the chart to excel data range
  3. Preview the model
  4. Hover your mouse on the chart

==> Notice the default label display


  • Contrary to the other charts which display the data series details, the bullet chart displays the highest data point ('performance') and the lowest data point ('comparative') which is by-design
  • This functionality does not currently exist in the product.
