Data Label Colors

We usually change the color of a data label, at the series level, by using the color setting under Basic > Data Labels > select a series > Label style > color. But our changes are being ignored. We tried under Advanced > Series 1 > Data Labels 1 > Color…and our changes are ignored there as well. Has anyone else run into this or know a workaround to change the color of a data label at the series level?


I was able to produce your issue in some cases and have reported it internally.

The workaround is unfortunately tricky:

options.series[1].dataLabels.color = 'green'


[1] refers to the series that is desired to change, starting from 0.
'green' is a color, can also be hex, e.g., '#fafafa'
