    Dear Sirs,

    First, you've got an awesome product!  We've been using your ASP.Net, WinForms and Reporting for a few years and we've produced great results from them...

    Ok, old issue...  Within Reporting 2013 Q1, can we effect chart series tooltips?  I've read the older forum posts saying that it may be coming and now I see in the 2013 Q1 Online Documentation items for things like ActiveRegions but not sure how/if this can make it happen.

    Basically, we have multiple line series on a chart each with PointMarks and no data labels.  It would be wonderful for a user to be able to mouseover a PointMark and see more information.

    I've tried:
    For i As Integer = 1 To SummaryData.GetUpperBound(0)
        Dim myItem As New ChartSeriesItem(SummaryData(i).sValue)
        If SummaryData(i).sValue1 = 0 And Me.ReportParameters("HideZeros").Value Then
            myItem.Label.Visible = False
            myItem.Empty = True
        End If
        myItem.ActiveRegion.Tooltip = SeriesName(2)
        chartSeries1.AddItem(myItem)
    Next

    This produces no compile or runtime errors and the chart looks great - but it does not enable a mouseover effect (aka tooltip) in the chart in the ReportViewer when the user moves their mouse over a series PointMark.

    Hopefully waiting,
    Steve

    Hello Steven,

    We can see from your code that you are actually looking at the old Chart item and not the new Graph. Tooltips in the Chart are not functional and we do not plan future development of the Chart. However the new Graph that is designed to replace the Chart will have tooltips but currently we cannot engage with a certain time frame. You can rest assured that this feature has high rank in our to do list and it will be delivered as soon as possible.

    For more information please check this Graph item blog. The documentation for it is coming soon, until then more information can be found in the following blog posts:


    All the best,

    Did this ever get added in? I don't see it in the report designer (Q1 2016).

    The site is continually failing when I try to post so I'll be short.

    Your link doesn't work but I found it and upvoted.

    I know how to do this right now if anyone needs to know just shoot me a message.
