    Hi, I have a chart inside a Scrollview that wasn't scrolling. Based on this thread't-scroll I decided to look into a gesturerecognizer. However, the example shows how to select a point. What I would like is to turn on a tooltip. I have the behavior turned on but can't seem to manually turn on the tooltip itself. The tooltip works fine if I allow the LongPressGesture to resolve normally so that is not the issue. I just need to manually turn it on it seems.

    This code seems to select the point, assuming I set the selection mode properly.

    private void HandleTap(UITapGestureRecognizer tap)
        var touchPoint = tap.LocationInView(Control.PlotView);  // Control is TKChart
        var hitTestInfo = Control.HitTestForPoint(touchPoint);


    How can I turn on the tooltip for that point as if they'd tapped it?

    Thank you,

    Hi Bryce,

    Thank you for contacting us! In order to manually show the tool tip you would require the following:

     - setup the trackball behavior to RadCartesianChart. Ii will simplify the tooltip content setup:
        <telerikChart:ChartTrackBallBehavior ShowTrackInfo="true" ShowIntersectionPoints="true"  />

     - add the following code in the tap recognizer:

    public void OnTap(UITapGestureRecognizer recognizer)
         var touchPoint = recognizer.LocationInView(Control.PlotView);  // Control is TKChart

    Let me know if this helps.
