Tooltip

Chart will display details about the points through tooltip, when the mouse is moved over the point.

Default Tooltip

By default, tooltip is not visible. Enable the tooltip by setting enable property to true.

razor
default.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2;
    @section ControlsSection{
    @Html.EJS().Chart("container").Series(series =>
   {
   series.Type(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartSeriesType.Column).
   Marker(ViewBag.Marker).
   XName("x").
   YName("yValue").
   DataSource(ViewBag.dataSource).
   Name("Gold").
   Width(2).Add();
   }).
   PrimaryXAxis(px => px.Interval(1).ValueType(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ValueType.Category)).
   Title("Olympic Medal Counts - RIO").Tooltip(tt => tt.Enable(true)).Render()
    }
public IActionResult Index()
        {
            List<ColumnChartData> chartData = new List<ColumnChartData>
            {
                new ColumnChartData { x= "USA", yValue= 46 }, 
                new ColumnChartData { x= "GBR", yValue= 27 }, 
                new ColumnChartData { x= "CHN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "UK", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "AUS", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "IND", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "DEN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "MEX", yValue= 26 },
            };
            ViewBag.dataSource = chartData;
            return View();
        }
        public class ColumnChartData
        {
            public string x;
            public double yValue;
        }

Format the Tooltip

By default, tooltip shows information of x and y value in points. In addition to that, you can show more information in tooltip. For example the format ’${series.name} ${point.x}’ shows series name and point x value.

razor
format.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2;
   @section ControlsSection{
    @Html.EJS().Chart("container").Series(series =>
   {
   series.Type(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartSeriesType.Column).
   Marker(ViewBag.Marker).
   XName("x").
   YName("yValue").
   DataSource(ViewBag.dataSource).
   Name("Gold").
   Width(2).Add();
   }).
   PrimaryXAxis(px => px.Interval(1).ValueType(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ValueType.Category)).
   Title("Olympic Medal Counts - RIO").
   Tooltip(tt => tt.Enable(true).
   Header("medal count").
   Format("${series.name} ${point.x} : ${point.y}")).Render()
   }
public IActionResult Index()
        {
            List<ColumnChartData> chartData = new List<ColumnChartData>
            {
                new ColumnChartData { x= "USA", yValue= 46 }, 
                new ColumnChartData { x= "GBR", yValue= 27 }, 
                new ColumnChartData { x= "CHN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "UK", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "AUS", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "IND", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "DEN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "MEX", yValue= 26 },
            };
            ViewBag.dataSource = chartData;
            return View();
        }
        public class ColumnChartData
        {
            public string x;
            public double yValue;
        }

Tooltip Template

Any HTML elements can be displayed in the tooltip by using the ‘template’ property of the tooltip. You can use the ${x} and ${y} as place holders in the HTML element to display the x and y values of the corresponding data point.

razor
template.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2;
    @section ControlsSection{
    @Html.EJS().Chart("container").Series(series =>
   {
   series.Type(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartSeriesType.Column).
   Marker(ViewBag.Marker).
   XName("x").
   YName("yValue").
   DataSource(ViewBag.dataSource).
   Name("Gold").
   Width(2).Add();
   }).
   PrimaryXAxis(px => px.Interval(1).ValueType(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ValueType.Category)).
   Title("Olympic Medal Counts - RIO").
   Tooltip(tt => tt.Enable(true).
   header("medal count").
   template=("#Medal")).Render()
}
    <script id="Medal" type="text/x-template">
      <div id='templateWrap'>
     <table style="width:100%;  border: 1px solid black;">
     <tr><th colspan="2" bgcolor="#00FFFF">Medal</th></tr>
     <tr><td bgcolor="#00FFFF">${x}:</td><td bgcolor="#00FFFF">${y}</td></tr>
    </table>
    </div>
  </script>
public IActionResult Index()
        {
            List<ColumnChartData> chartData = new List<ColumnChartData>
            {
                new ColumnChartData { x= "USA", yValue= 46 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "GBR", yValue= 27 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "CHN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "UK", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "AUS", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "IND", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "DEN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "MEX", yValue= 26 },
            };
            ViewBag.dataSource = chartData;
            return View();
        }
        public class ColumnChartData
        {
            public string x;
            public double yValue;
        }

Customize the Appearance of Tooltip

The fill and border properties are used to customize the background color and border of the tooltip respectively. The textStyle property in the tooltip is used to customize the font of the tooltip text.

razor
custom-tooltip.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2;
    @section ControlsSection{
    @Html.EJS().Chart("container").Series(series =>
   {
   series.Type(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ChartSeriesType.Column).
   Marker(ViewBag.Marker).
   XName("x").
   YName("yValue").
   DataSource(ViewBag.dataSource).
   Name("Gold").
   Width(2).Add();
   }).
   PrimaryXAxis(px => px.Interval(1).ValueType(Syncfusion.EJ2.Charts.ValueType.Category)).
   Title("Olympic Medal Counts - RIO").Tooltip(tt => tt.Enable(true).
   Format("<b>${point.x} : ${point.y}</b>").
   Fill('#7bb4eb').Render()
    }
public IActionResult Index()
        {
            List<ColumnChartData> chartData = new List<ColumnChartData>
            {
                new ColumnChartData { x= "USA", yValue= 46 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "GBR", yValue= 27 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "CHN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "UK", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "AUS", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "IND", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "DEN", yValue= 26 },
                new ColumnChartData { x= "MEX", yValue= 26 },
            };
            ViewBag.dataSource = chartData;
            return View();
        }
        public class ColumnChartData
        {
            public string x;
            public double yValue;
        }

Tooltip Mapping Name

By default, tooltip shows information of x and y value in points. You can show more information from data source in tooltip by using the tooltipMappingName property of the tooltip. You can use the ${point.tooltip} as place holders to display the specified tooltip content.
