This section describes the methods that can be used in code to manipulate the Point object.
Deselects the point.
Gets the parameters of the point's minimum bounding rectangle (MBR).
The object returned by this method contains the X and Y coordinates of the upper-left corner of the MBR. These coordinates are relative to the client area (widget's container). Additionally, the returned object contains the height and width of the MBR.
Gets the color of a particular point.
Allows you to obtain the label(s) of the series point.
Hides the tooltip of the point.
The hideTooltip() and showTooltip() methods allow you to change tooltip visibility in code. Call the point's hideTooltip() method to hide the tooltip of this point.
Provides information about the hover state of a point.
When a point is hovered over, this method returns true. Otherwise, the returned value is false.
To learn more about point and series hover operation, refer to the Hover Handling topic.
Hover over a point on the chart and information about the country of the hovered series point will appear under the chart. When the point that has been hovered over is hovered out, the information disappears. This behavior is achieved using the isHovered() method of the hovered point.
Provides information about the selection state of a point.
When a point is selected, this method returns true. Otherwise, the returned value is false.
You can select a point using its select() method. To learn more about point and series selection, refer to the Selection Handling topic.
Click a point on the chart to select this point. Information about the country of the selected series point will appear under the chart. Click this point again and the information will disappear. This behavior is achieved using the isSelected() method of the clicked point.
Selects the point. The point is displayed in a 'selected' style until another point is selected or the current point is deselected programmatically.
Shows the tooltip of the point.
The hideTooltip() and showTooltip() methods allow you to change tooltip visibility in code. Call the point's showTooltip() method to show the tooltip of this point.
