Thanks to Deepayan for his quick answer. Well, I am quite familiar with 
R programming, so programming would not be the issue. What is an issue 
is that I do not (yet) fully understand how the panel-function 
interacts with the calling barchart-function (or vice versa). My 
stacked bar is build of five variables [barchart(ID ~ 
L1+L2+L3+L4+DN ...) ] so the problem is that the data label to be 
displayed is either L1,2,3,4 or DN (for ID, see my first posting).

So the question is: How could I use the current data value used for 
drawing the "sub-bar" as an argument/variable for/in the
