View Full Version : Trying to truncate chart axis label text & add tooltip

08-11-2009, 06:39 PM
I have a bar chart that can have very long values for the Y axis labels. I'd like to truncate those labels and allow the user to roll over the truncated label to see a tooltip containing the full text. Truncating was no problem, but I'm having problems implementing the tooltip - not sure how to access the label text from my custom labelRenderer. The labelRenderer extends ChartLabel. I also thought about using a function for the tooltip (in the MXML), but not sure how to access the label text there either. Any thoughts on how to do this?

Any thoughts on this? Does anyone have experience with data visualization package? It seems that I can't bind data to the tooltip field in my Axis Renderer. Please help!
