Adding tooltip labels to scatter chart

Hi,

Sorry this is a very speculative question as I just want to check something out without doing the leg work!!!'

I'm producing some scatter charts either in SQL Reporting Services 2005 + Dundas plug in OR in SQL Reporting Services 2008 (yet to be established, it was going to be just 2005 until I found I couldn't put a trend line on a scatter chart!).  

On the scatter charts I want to put a small 'label' that will appear when the mouse is hovvered over a point (different value for each different point).  Can anyone confirm this is actually reasonably easily achievable?  I think I checked before but I can't remember and as I'm just writing proposals to get around the trend line problem it just occurred to me I should double check this functionality is possible!  

Thanks

Hi

Normally you just click the object you want inside the graph go to properties and use tooptip property (usually using Field from dataset). I can't see what it wouldn't work.

BDW I haven't done that myself but I would imagine you can put trend line on scatter chart but adding new data field and changing it type to line? Something like the picture attached??? (I used 2008 but I would imagine 2005 should have it as well)

No it's not possible in 2005, unbelievable really (it is possible on other chart types - I've doneit on a bar chart before).

I guess my question is can the point labels be made be hidden and only visible when the point is clicked/hovvered on?

Thanks,

Hi

If your question is if you can have 'tooltip' when you hover a point in scatter graph using 2008 then yes that works (Just tested).
