    Data points on a LineSeries

    yantzgh Level 1
      Is it possible to show the data points on a LineSeries? Currently, the round data point only appears when the mouse is over the data point. What I'd like is to have that data point always visible (and to not show the dataTip).

      Any help would be appreciated. I'm using the 3.2 SDK

              The Flex SDK team should look into making this behavior easier. I spent almost 2 days searching Google and the Forums for a solution to this problem.

              Also, in the code listed at the blog, it doesn't show how to set the color of the circle. The circle takes it color from the 'fill' style of the line. So, if you haven't explicitly set the fill for the line, it will use the default color (which will likely not match your lineStroke style).

                Well, gee, let me just run out and redo the example to reflect every little
                thing every user could possibly want...

                Just FYI, I found the vast majority of the information needed to do that in
                the Help files. There's an article on my blog about how to set up your help
                to make the results more useful.

                  Sorry to have offended you Amy. I wasn't trying to sound ungrateful. Your solution was a great help.
