You can add numbers to bars in a d3.js bar chart by appending text elements to the bars and setting the text content to the data value. Here's a basic example:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
18
19
20
21
22
23
24
25
26
27
28
29
30
31
32

// Create an array of data
var data = [10, 20, 30, 40, 50];

// Set up the SVG canvas
var svg = d3.select("body").append("svg")
  .attr("width", 500)
  .attr("height", 300);

// Create a scale for the x-axis
var xScale = d3.scaleBand()
  .domain(d3.range(data.length))
  .range([0, 400])
  .padding(0.1);

// Create a scale for the y-axis
var yScale = d3.scaleLinear()
  .domain([0, d3.max(data)])
  .range([0, 200]);

// Create the bars
svg.selectAll("rect")
  .data(data)
  .enter().append("rect")
  .attr("x", function(d, i) { return xScale(i); })
  .attr("y", function(d) { return 200 - yScale(d); })
  .attr("width", xScale.bandwidth())
  .attr("height", function(d) { return yScale(d); })
  .attr("fill", "steelblue");

// Add the numbers to the bars
svg.selectAll("text")
  .data(data)
  .enter().append("text")
  .text(function(d) { return d; })
  .attr("x", function(d, i) { return xScale(i) + xScale.bandwidth() / 2; })
  .attr("y", function(d) { return 200 - yScale(d) + 20; })
  .attr("text-anchor", "middle")
  .attr("fill", "white");


This code creates a simple bar chart with numbers added to the top of each bar. You can customize the appearance of the numbers by changing the text attributes such as font size, color, and alignment.
