  1. How can I remove the tooltip’s shadow and the background?
    I want to show only the tooltip’s number without box.

    Thank you

  2. I found when tooltip enabled is set to false, it will make the chart mulfunction should there is other tooltip properties is being set. This could be troublesome to turn on/off the tooltip on the script.

  3. Hi, I need to let toolTip hide when I “mouseout” the point of scatter chart, or the toolTip will cover other points to lead to bad experence.
    How can I do it?
    Thanks in advance.

  4. When using two data array’s is it possible to only have tooltips enabled on one, I am trying to create a reference rangeArea but i don’t want it selectable / tooltips to show up.
