let me describe my situation:

1 i have an XYScatter chart in my excel js addin

2 and i need to add data labels to some of points in that chart

3 and here i have a problem - i do not understand how to set up that datalabels.

in my attemptions to solve it i had use this page https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/javascript/api/excel/excel.chartdatalabels?view=excel-js-preview

and MS script lab for excel

please look at images below, it is my attemptions to turn on displaying of any possible data but in any way i'm getting y axis data or no data at all. also in script lab i found only one example of datalabels and in my case it does not work.

but anyway documentations says that I shall have possibility to display plenty of data and not just y axis value. could you please clarify to me what I'm doing wrong or what I misunderstanding in documentation and please give me a hand with my main task - display some custom text as data label
