SVG charts have, since their inception, had sliding
tooltips. In my opinion, these look nicer than the
canvas tooltips - which "jump"to the new
Well hold to your hats, because the
canvas charts now
have - sliding tooltips!
They operate in much the same way as the
tooltips and this effect is now the default. That
means that if you upgrade your
canvas libraries and
your chart has tooltips, you'll get the sliding effect instead
of the fade effect by default.
If you don't like it then you can just set the
tooltipsEffect property to
in your chart's configuration.
To see an example of the fade effect you can see it on the SVG Bar chart documentation page.
