Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to ShowForSeries
WinForms Controls ChartControl
ASP.NET MVC Extensions ChartControlSettings
ASP.NET Web Forms Controls WebChartControl


Before using the ShowForSeries property, make sure the ChartControl.ToolTipEnabled property is set to true.

You can also use the ToolTipOptions.ShowForPoints property (to display tooltips for each point) either separately or together with the ShowForSeries property.


Because of the specifics of the Bar and Point series, you can see a tooltip for these series only in a legend.

The following table shows this property in action.

ShowForSeries=True ShowForSeries=False
ShowForSeriesEnabled ShowForSeriesDisabled
