Text label strings allow tokens prefixed with a percentage sign to be replaced by actual data when the chart is rendered. This is particularly useful for item level properties such as Label Template, URL and ToolTip where you can mix your own text with tokens. If you wish to have template values rendered on multiple lines you can use \r where you wish a new line to begin.

**Manually Evaluate Tokens**

Through the use of DataSource objects tokens can be evaluated in code while working with a chart as described in the DataSource tutorial.

**Embedding Token Formatting**

Format strings may be included in templates using the following syntax:

Characters such as">" can not be used in the format string.

Example: <%Value,Currency>

Unrecognized template tokens will be replaced with "?". If you see a question mark included, check the spelling of your token.

**Bypass Token Processing**

An escape character is available to bypass token processing. Using the forward slash '\' before a token will stop the token from being processed. For example, using '\%Name' will result the string '%Name'.

Describes an Element object. These tokens are generally used by element legend entries, element labels and in annotations.

Axis ticks use different tokens depending on the situation.

- If the axis tick comes from an element (Element.X/YAxisTick) then use Element Tokens.
- If the axis tick is part of a category axis it use either Element Group or Series Tokens.
- If the axis tick is part of a value axis use the token '%Value' and if it's a range tick, ScaleRange Tokens apply.
- If the axis tick is part of an axis marker, use ScaleRange Tokens.

Shapefile shapes store attributes which are determined by the source shapefile. These attributes can be used as tokens in any labels related to shapes.
