Changing comment on series point


Posted by Ruth Ann Francis on May 09, 2000 3:04 PM

On a scatter plot, if you hover the mouse over a point
in the series, a little box comes up that has the
series name and the x-y coordinates of that point.
I'd like to change what that box says without changing
the series name or the values.

Anyone know how?

Thanks
Ruth Ann

Thanks for the info.
I've got the labeler and that works okay, but I
need something that's less interactive.
I really don't want to change the label, but
instead change the text that pops up when you
hover over a point.

As an alternative, I'm working on creating my own
labeler that will work just by clicking on the point,
but it's slow going.

Thanks again.
