Data Labels in React Maps component

02 Feb 2023 / 6 minutes to read

Data labels provide information to users about the shapes of the Maps component. It can be enabled by setting the visible property of the dataLabelSettings to true.

To use the data label feature, the DataLabel module must be injected.

Adding data labels

To display the data labels in the Maps, set the field name containing the text to be displayed from the data source or shape data in the labelPath property of the dataLabelSettings property.

In the following example, the value of labelPath property is set from the field name in the shape data of the Maps layer.

Adding data label as a template

Any HTML elements can be added as a template in the data labels by using the template property of dataLabelSettings in the Maps component.

The properties of data label such as, smartLabelMode , intersectionAction, border, fill, opacity and textStyle properties are not applicable to template property. The styles can be applied to the label template using the CSS styles of the HTML element.
