23 Jun 202316 minutes to read

StockChart 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 and by injecting Tooltip module using StockChart.Inject(Tooltip).

var stockChart = new ej.charts.StockChart({
        primaryXAxis: {
            valueType: 'DateTime'
        },
        series: [
            {
                type: 'Candle',
                dataSource: chartData
            }],
        title: 'Unemployment Rates 1975-2010',
        //Default tooltip for StockChart
        tooltip: {enable: true}
});
stockChart.appendTo('#element');

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.

var stockChart = new ej.charts.StockChart({
        primaryXAxis: {
            valueType: 'DateTime'
        },
        series: [
            {
                type: 'Candle',
                dataSource: chartData
            }],
        title: 'Unemployment Rates 1975-2010',
        tooltip: {
            enable: true,
            //tooltip format for StockChart
             header: 'Unemployment',
             format: '<b>${point.x} : ${point.y}</b>'
        }
});
stockChart.appendTo('#element');

Position the tooltip

By default, the tooltip is positioned at the left side of the stock chart. You can move the tooltip along with the mouse by setting Nearest to the position property.

    primaryXAxis: {
        valueType: 'DateTime'
    },
    series: [
        {
            type: 'Candle',

        }],
    title: 'Unemployment Rates 1975-2010',
    tooltip: {
        enable: true,
        shared: true,
        position: 'Nearest'
    }

    { x: new Date(1980, 0, 1), y: 12.5, y1: 7.5, y2: 5 },
