# Add Labels to D3 Elements

D3 lets you label a graph element, such as a bar, using the SVG text element.

Like the rect element, a text element needs to have x and y attributes, to place it on the SVG canvas. It also needs to access the data to display those values.

D3 gives you a high level of control over how you label your bars.

The code in the editor already binds the data to each new text element. First, append text nodes to the svg. Next, add attributes for the x and y coordinates. They should be calculated the same way as the rect ones, except the y value for the text should make the label sit 3 units higher than the bar. Finally, use the D3 text() method to set the label equal to the data point value.

Note: For the label to sit higher than the bar, decide if the y value for the text should be 3 greater or 3 less than the y value for the bar.

  <div id="d3-container"></div>
    const dataset = [12, 31, 22, 17, 25, 18, 29, 14, 9];

    const w = 500;
    const h = 100;

    const svg = d3.select("#d3-container")
                  .attr("width", w)
                  .attr("height", h);

       .attr("x", (d, i) => i * 30)
       .attr("y", (d, i) => h - 3 * d)
       .attr("width", 25)
       .attr("height", (d, i) => 3 * d)
       .attr("fill", "navy");

       // Add your code below this line
       .attr("x", (d,i) => i * 30 )
       .attr("y", d => h - 3 * d - 3)
       .text(d => d)
       // Add your code above this line
