Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to ShowForSeries


Before using the ShowForSeries property, specify a series displayed name via the Series.DisplayName property.


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

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

The following table shows this property in action.

ShowForSeries=True ShowForSeries=False
ShowForSeriesTrue ShowForSeriesFalse

This example demonstrates how to change the appearance of a series tooltip via its template.

To do this, you need to create a DataTemplate object that specifies the appearance of series tooltips and assign it to the Series.ToolTipSeriesTemplate property. In this example, this has been done for the first series.

Note that before tooltip customization, you need to set the ChartControl.ToolTipEnabled and ToolTipOptions.ShowForSeries properties to true to show the tooltip for a series.

It is also necessary to specify a display name for each series displayed on the tooltip via the Series.DisplayName property.

<Window x:Class="ToolTipSeriesTemplate.MainWindow"
        Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525" >
        <dxc:ChartControl ToolTipEnabled="True" CrosshairEnabled="False">
                <dxc:ToolTipOptions ShowForPoints="False" ShowForSeries="True" />
                <dxc:LineSeries2D DisplayName="Series1">
                        <dxc:SeriesPoint Argument="A" Value="2" />
                        <dxc:SeriesPoint Argument="B" Value="4" />

                                       FontSize="14" Content="{Binding Path=ToolTipText}" />
                <dxc:LineSeries2D DisplayName="Series2">
