SFChart - Pie Series - Showing custom tooltip

Hi there,

Firstly, does the tooltip logic in SFCHart change based on the chart type? 

I have two pie charts within a UIScrollView.   

What I am trying to do is to show a model ViewController with two UILabels. The labels are the description and percentage value of the segment. Here are the various parts:

-- ChartViewController 
    -- Loads two charts within the same UIScrollView (my app is locked to landscape)
-- ChartDelegate
   -- Overrides the WillShowTooltip method
-- TooltipViewController 
  -- Overrides ViewWillAppear 
-- ChartView Model
  -- Overrides GetDataPoint, GetNumberOfDataPoints, GetSeries, NumberOfSeriesInChart.

What I am seeing is an empty tooltip - although the same logic was applied to a StackingColumnSeries and the CustomView tooltip appears correctly.... 

Stepping through I can inspect 

   tooltipView.CustomView = _tooltipViewController.View;

within the WillShowTooltip override and can see that it has correctly created the custom view (TooltipViewController.VIew) but when it appears on the screen the tooltip is empty and 0 width and height. 

Any help would be much appreciated.

All the best,
