Hello M N,
can you upload your workbook ?
There's no 'out of the box' solution to alter the background colour of labels. One possible hack would be to use reference lines as per this thread: Can you give labels a background color?
There's also an active idea you can upvote for altering the background colour of mark labels: https://community.tableau.com/ideas/8531
You other point about colouring the measure, drag the Measure Names pill to the colour shelf.
Hello M N
For Problem number 1 u want to make likes this one right?
i created this using 2 measure value ( depend on ur data ) 1 measure value using bar and the other one using shape and u just need to input ur value into the 2nd measure value. if you got confused you can upload your workbook so i can try it using ur workbook.
For question number 2 i think i need to try it first, the first thing in my mind was uisng measure names and colored it
Hi Andrew, thanks for reply. For the question number 2 if I just drag Measure Names pill and drop it on the color shelf it will color the values, not the header ("Direct", "ICT", etc are headers).
And yes I already had a look at that thread you share, but actually it's not the one I want, so I'm wondering if there's another way to hack this.
Hi Welly, thanks so much for your effort to help me with this problem. I will give it a try first and let you know the result. If I got confused then I will upload my workbook
Thanks so much!
The Measure Names thing - quite simple to resolve. Create a new pill called one with the formula 1. Change your chart type to a bar. Put the new field [one] on the Size shelf. Put Measure Values on the Label shelf. Measure Names remains on the Colour shelf.
