How to suppress "Plot Area" tooltip?

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I'm using ChartFX Client-Server, and would like to suppress the tooltip that

says "Plot Area" when the mouse is positioned over the chart. I like the

tooltips for data points, but the "Plot Area" tooltip is likely to be

confusing to my users.

I've searched the Help files for Tooltip, but can't find a property that

sets the "Plot Area" tooltip. In my chart, I have ShowTips set to True, and

the chart's ToolTipText is blank.

Thanks! That worked OK, with one unusual issue. I use Visual Basic 6, and

setting Chart.hText = vbNullString (the vb intrinsic null string constant)

did not work. When I set Chart.hText = "" it worked OK.
