I am using JFreeCharts and tring to change the font size that is used to display bar values.

I am stuck on the line of code showing "WHAT GOES HERE?".

According to the org.jfree.chart.renderer.AbstractRenderer, a java.awt.Font object - which can be constructed with a font name, a font style (like bold, italic, underline etc.) and a font size.

Still having trouble getting syntax right. Can you help with the correct way to construct the Font?

I'm not familiar with Font.getFont, but the parameters look about right. I'd use a constructor instead: new Font("TimesRoman", Font.PLAIN, 8)

You can call Font.getAllFonts to get a list of all fonts and their correct spellings.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
