TipMask/ShowTips - ActiveX

Hi.

I've been working with some activex charts on my webpages (asp).

Normally I just use png/gif files, but I want to show the values of the

chart, when the mouse is place above them, therefore I changed the type to

activex.

I don't want much to be shown, or to be editable, and therefore I set

AllowDrag, AllowEdit and AllowResize to false. Also the ContextMenus is set

to false. Finally the DblClk is set to CHART_NONECLK to keep users from

being able to change anything.

My first goal is only to have TipMask shown on my bars (it's a BAR chart

which are horizontal).

How do I prevent it from showing "Y axis", "X axis", "chart area", "plot

area" and so on, when the mouse is moved around the area?

If I set the Showtips to false, then of course my tips on the bars will

disapear too.

My second goal is to have different TipMasks for my ValueEx and my

IniValueEx. When I set the TipMask to something (e.g. "%i" + " to " + "%v"),

then this is shown both on the ValueEx and IniValueEx bars. Is it possible

to show different TipMasks for these two?

Hello,

Since you only want to view tooltips on your chart instead of using the

other features that the ActiveX offers you I would recommend that you do not

use the ActiveX control but instead produce an image. These samples on our

support site demonstrate how to do this. In addition we only produce tool

tips for the bars themselves when using image maps.

Concerning your second question about having separate tooltips for IniValue

and Value. The answer to your question is that No we do not support this

feature.
