Pointtext does not work


Recommended Posts

I am using the Pointtext in ChartFX7 for WinForms. When the ChartFX control loses focus (when I switch to a different view) and then return back to the control, the Pointtext does not appear when I hover the mouse over the point data in the chart! Is this a bug or is there a solution to fix the problem.

Appreciate a prompt response!

Hi Randy,

 That was a mistake. Sorry about that.

 The code snippet is given below:

for (int i = EnvironmentCount; i < EnvironmentDetailsSource.Columns.Count; i++)<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


  for (int j = 0; j < EnvironmentDetailsSource.Rows.Count; j++)

  TimeSeriesChartControl.Points [i, j].Text = "\r\n" +



We are using the Text property of Points!

 Thanks for your help.

The ToolTipFormat property allows to control the information to be displayed in the tooltip when the user moves the mouse over a particular data point in the chart. If you specify the "L" parameter (see sample below), the tooltip will show the text property of the Point:

Chart1.ToolTipFormat = "%L" ;

Chart1.Points[0, 0].Text = "Custom Text" ;

The same applies for the pointlabels theirselves. If you want the pointlabels to show the text value of the point, you need to set the pointLabels format as follows:

Chart1.AllSeries.PointLabels.Format = "%L";

Chart1.Points[0, 0].Text = "Custom Text";
