Hi,

I am using a tooltip template in Rad Cartesian Chart View for ScatterSplineSeries. I defined Point Template and tooltip template and able to display X & Y Values. I want to Display the Horizontal Axis Title along with X value and Vertical Axis Title with Y Value. Also I would like to display the spline name too. Somehow I am not able to display the contents. I read in telreik about DataItem property of DataPoint class and even tried using it but unsuccessful .Here is my XAML and View Model.

<telerik:RadCartesianChart x:Name="CartesianChart" Visibility="Visible" HorizontalContentAlignment="Stretch" VerticalContentAlignment="Stretch"
                                  Style="{StaticResource RadCartesianChartStyle1}">
           <telerik:RadCartesianChart.Grid>
               <telerik:CartesianChartGrid MajorLinesVisibility="XY" MajorXLineStyle="{StaticResource GridLineStyle}"
                                           MajorYLineStyle="{StaticResource GridLineStyle}" />
           </telerik:RadCartesianChart.Grid>
           <telerik:RadCartesianChart.HorizontalAxis>
               <telerik:LinearAxis Title="{Binding HorizontalAxisTitle}" Minimum="0" Maximum="35" LineThickness="2" LineStroke="Transparent"
                                   Foreground="{DynamicResource BRUSH_TEXT}" Style="{StaticResource LinearAxisStyle}" />
           </telerik:RadCartesianChart.HorizontalAxis>
           <telerik:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis>
               <telerik:LinearAxis Minimum="0" Maximum="120" Title="{Binding VerticalAxisTitle}" LineThickness="2" Foreground="{DynamicResource BRUSH_TEXT}"
                                   Style="{StaticResource LinearAxisStyle}" />
           </telerik:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis>
 
           <telerik:RadCartesianChart.Behaviors>
               <telerik:ChartPanAndZoomBehavior DragMode="Pan" ZoomMode="Both" PanMode="Both" />

How do I acheive this. Kindly Help me

Hi,

I figured out that I had to use parent CartesianChart's Datacontext and set the value using Binding. Now I am able to display Horizontal and Vertical Axis Title in tooltip template.

Here is what I did

<telerik:RadCartesianChart.TooltipTemplate>
                <DataTemplate>
                    <Border Background="{DynamicResource BRUSH_TOOLTIP}" BorderBrush="{DynamicResource BRUSH_TOOLTIP}" BorderThickness="1" Padding="10">
                        <StackPanel Background="{DynamicResource BRUSH_TOOLTIP}">
                            <StackPanel Width="{TemplateBinding Width}" Orientation="Horizontal" Background="{DynamicResource BRUSH_TOOLTIP}" Margin="5">
                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor,
AncestorType={x:Type telerik:RadCartesianChart}}, Path=DataContext.VerticalAxisTitle}" />
                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding YValue}" />
                            </StackPanel>
                            <StackPanel Width="{TemplateBinding Width}" Orientation="Horizontal" Background="{DynamicResource BRUSH_TOOLTIP}" Margin="5">
                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor,
AncestorType={x:Type telerik:RadCartesianChart}}, Path=DataContext.HorizontalAxisTitle}" />
                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding XValue}" />
                            </StackPanel>
                            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Presenter.DisplayName}" />
                        </StackPanel>
                    </Border>
                </DataTemplate>
            </telerik:RadCartesianChart.TooltipTemplate>

Hello Shilpa,

In order to display the spline name with your setup, you can use a small change inside the tooltip template. It is demonstrated in the following code snippet. The amendment is marked in orange.
<telerik:RadCartesianChart.TooltipTemplate>
<DataTemplate>
<Border BorderThickness="1" Padding="10">
<StackPanel>
<StackPanel Width="{TemplateBinding Width}" Orientation="Horizontal" Margin="5">
<TextBlock Text="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type telerik:RadCartesianChart}}, Path=DataContext.VerticalAxisTitle}" /> 
     <TextBlock Text="{Binding YValue}" />
</StackPanel>
<StackPanel Width="{TemplateBinding Width}" Orientation="Horizontal" Margin="5">
<TextBlock Text="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type telerik:RadCartesianChart}}, Path=DataContext.HorizontalAxisTitle}" />
<TextBlock Text="{Binding XValue}" />
</StackPanel>
      <TextBlock Text="{Binding Presenter.DataContext.Name}" />
    </StackPanel>
</Border>
 </DataTemplate>
</telerik:RadCartesianChart.TooltipTemplate>
With this setup the DataContext of the Presenter is the SplineSeries object, where the property Name can be accessed.

If you have further questions about this let us know.
