Create ToolTipAlign

Jan 23, 2009 at 9:04 AM
Can you pls add a ToolTipAlign property to the markers, to allow me to rotate the tooltip positions incase they overlap existing markers on the map.

If you allow manual setting also, because what i will allow is the user to select a market, then click a button to rotate the ToolTip  on the map to uncover maybe map locations beneath the tool tip so they can format the look of the map before printing / saving the view

well i have your control hosted on a form that handles all the user requests. I then inherit this form whenever  i need to display a map, so i will handle the user requests, but just need to be able to set the tooltip location,

you can override DrawToolTip, draw tooltip yourself and change x,y as you want, default point is marker center

i use VB and am using the DLL of your control and dont' think i can override the protected method from you're DLL

Another idea, can you add  TOOLTIP  position to the Market object,  i will then allow the user to even drag the tool tip to any location, but still draw the connecting line.
This will again, allow the user to make a map more readable when a high number of markers are displayed.
