gettip

Its been about 2.5 years since I was deep into chartFX programming and it

has been performing well for us since that time. I have a new project and am

trying to re-learn what I used to know !

I have used .tipmask to add text to the values in a series, but now I need

to show text based on the series.

From looking around, I am thinking if I could capture the series via the

gettip event, I could customize the message shown. I could go with either

mouse over, double click, or right click.

My problem is I'm clueless how to use the gettip event (assuming that it

represents the correct manner in which to proceed). I think I'm missing

some understanding how to use the information in the API Help document

regarding this event.

Any assistance would be sincerely apprtciated

The GetTip event is called right before a tooltip is about to appear. It

gives you complete control over the contents of the text displayed.

The TipMask in the other hand, allows you to display certain "macros" such

as the Point's value, Label, Legend, Etc.

Depending on exactly what you need to display, you can use one or the other.

Rule of thumbs: Use GetTip when TipMask won't do the job.
