Hi Dalvir,

The behavior with FancyToolTip is suspected to be a defect and and have forwarded to our Development Team and we will be working on this with maximum priority. You can track the progress of this bug fix in this link below.

Defect #10814 - Fancy ToolTip is not displayed at the correct position.

However, it is possible to display normal ToolTip at the correct Point position.
By setting the ChartControl.ShowToolTips property and the prepare style event as given below.

this.chartControl1.ShowToolTips = true;

protected void ChartControlSeries_PrepareStyle(object sender, ChartPrepareStyleInfoEventArgs args)
ChartSeries series = sender as ChartSeries;
if (series != null)
args.Style.Text = string.Format("Value is {0}", series.Points[args.Index].YValues[0]);
args.Style.ToolTip = "[X= Day " + series.Points[args.Index].X.ToString() + ", Y= " + series.Points[args.Index].YValues[0].ToString()+"]";
args.Handled = true;

I have attached a sample illustrating the same in this link below.


Kindly let us know if this meets your requirement. Thanks for your patience.
