    Hello, i have a problem with RadHtmlChart . In several cases it does not visualize simple data. By the link (  you can download simple project where i reproduce the problem. All the logic related to problem is inplemented in the default.aspx.cs 
    There is a data file attached a to which the link had been made where the problem reproduces and there is a data file also where the problem does not reproduce.

    Best Regards.

    The bug was related to dynamic implementation of tooltip instead of tie it to DataTable using databind ). 

    // clear the chart series collection and add our new series.
                // select all Risk/Returns in sorted collection.
                var seriesValues = Positions;
                _risk_return_dt = new DataTable();
                object[] array = new object[seriesValues.Count() * 3];
                // load series items.
                int i = 0;
                foreach (var position in seriesValues)
                 //   _risk_return_dt.Columns.Add("id"+i);
                    _risk_return_dt.Columns.Add("xValues" + i);
                    _risk_return_dt.Columns.Add("yValues" + i);
                    _risk_return_dt.Columns.Add("tooltip" + i);
                 //   _risk_return_dt.Columns.Add("yValues" + i);
                    array[i * 3] = position.x;
                    array[i * 3 + 1] = position.y;
                    array[i * 3 + 2] = String.Format("<strong>{0}</strong><br / >{1}<br />{2}%",
                        position.Symbol, position.Name, position.x);
                i = 0;
                // load series items.
                foreach (var position in seriesValues)
                    // create the series and set its values.
                    ScatterSeries series = new ScatterSeries();
                    series.Name = position.Symbol;
                    series.LabelsAppearance.Visible = false;
                    series.MarkersAppearance.BackgroundColor = Color.Black;
                    // Set value to 0 if NaN double value

                    series.DataFieldX = "xValues"+i;
                    series.DataFieldY = "yValues"+i;
                    series.TooltipsAppearance.ClientTemplate = "#=dataItem.tooltip"+i+"#";
                    string pColor = position.Color;
                    series.Appearance.FillStyle.BackgroundColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml(pColor);
                    // add the serie to the chart.
                riskReturnChart.DataSource = _risk_return_dt;

    Hello Yuri,

    I wasn't able to download the project from the link you provided. Could you give me a detailed explanation of both the problem and the two "data files" - the one which reproduces the issue and the one that works OK?

    Meanwhile, I have created a sample page where I create a data bound ScatterSeries which uses the ClientTemplate property of the ToolTipsAppearance. Could you have a look at it and try to modify the scenario, so that it reproduces your issue? It would be very helpful if you send me back the modified version of the code so I can investigate the case and give you further suggestions.
