    We're evaluating RadChart 2011-Q3. We like the tooltip concept, but it would be much more useful to us if we could somehow get both the Y axis and X axis value to display to the user. I can't seem to find a way to do this. Is it possible?

    Thank you.

    Yes, this can easily be achieved by setting the ItemToolTipFormat property of the series. I have pasted some code below.
        <telerik:BarSeriesDefinition ItemToolTipFormat="the X value is #X, the Y value is #Y" ShowItemToolTips="True" />
       <telerik:ItemMapping DataPointMember="XValue" FieldName="Day" />
       <telerik:ItemMapping DataPointMember="YValue" FieldName="Degrees" />

    You can read about other format expressions here. Note that it is also possible to access your business object's properties through the #DATAITEM token.

    This section on ToolTips might also be interesting to you as it demonstrates how to format the tooltip and how to set a custom tooltip content. You can also find an example of setting a custom tooltip content in our demos (the demo is called Custom Tooltips).

    Hope the above information and links help.

    Hello Purna,

    I answered your question in the other forum. Can you please check it there?
