The drawing API marker2 object

[No canvas support]

The marker2 object allows you to add extra information to your charts in the form of markers. These markers can then give even more information in the form of tooltips or by using the event properties.

Usage example

    var line = new RGraph.Line({
        id: 'cvs',
        data: [4,9,1,3,2,6,5],
        options: {
            labels: ['Monday','Tuesday','Wednesday','Thursday','Friday','Saturday','Sunday'],
            hmargin: 5,
            tickmarks: 'endcircle',
            colors: ['black'],
            tooltips: ['A','B','C','D','E','F','G'],
            gutterBottom: 35,
            textSize: 14

    var x = line.coords[3][0],
        y = line.coords[3][1];

    new RGraph.Drawing.Marker2({
        id: 'cvs',
        x: x,
        y: y,
        text: 'Note',
        options: {
            tooltips: ['<b>Note</b><br />Extra information can be displayed'],
            highlightFill: 'rgba(255,0,0,0.5)',
            shadow: false,
            textAccessiblePointerevents: false,
            textSize: 14
