How to put a TextBox into the Chart body RRS feed

    Hi all

    I have a chart from SSRS and I am working on it in BIDS. I want to place a textbox in the body of the chart, near a trend line which will link to a detail report. However when I place the texbox on the chart and run it, the text does not show up on the chart. The textbox has been brought to front, so I don't think it is a layering thing, unless the chart body is in front regardless.

    How do I get the textbox to show up?

    We could not lay a textbox on chart's body, if you want to jump to other detail report, you could add an action to data label or legend.
