Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Charts

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Charts.v21.1.dll


public ChartToolTipController ToolTipController { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

The tooltip controller.


Before the tooltip customization, make sure the ChartControl.ToolTipEnabled property is set to true.

Use properties of the ChartToolTipController object to customize the tooltip appearance on a chart (e.g., ChartToolTipController.ShowBeak, ChartToolTipController.ShowShadow) and define the tooltip behavior (e.g, ChartToolTipController.CloseOnClick, ChartToolTipController.OpenMode, ChartToolTipController.InitialDelay).

For more information on how to use a tooltip in your application, see the Tooltip topic.


This example demonstrates how to show a tooltip when a user clicks a series point.

Set the ChartControl.ToolTipEnabled property to true to enable tooltips. Until you disable ChartControlBase.CrosshairEnabled, the Crosshair Cursor and tooltip are shown simultaneously.

To invoke a tooltip for a marker series, such as LineSeries2D, user should click or hover over a point marker. Set the LineSeries2D.MarkerVisible property to true to enable markers.

The Series.ToolTipPointPattern property defines the text shown in a tooltip for a point.

To customize the tooltip behavior, initialize the ChartControl.ToolTipController property with an ChartToolTipController object. Specify its ChartToolTipController.OpenMode, ChartToolTipController.ShowShadow, ChartToolTipController.InitialDelay, and ChartToolTipController.ContentMargin properties.

<dxc:ChartControl CrosshairEnabled="False" 
        <dxc:ChartToolTipController OpenMode="OnClick" 
        <dxc:LineSeries2D MarkerVisible="True"
                          ToolTipPointPattern="{}Argument: {A}&#x0a;Value: {V:f3}"/>
