    How to show coordinate on datatip?

    ahmadmoonsyi Level 1

      i had found this in Flex Help, but the coordinate value is shown in the textarea. how to make it appeared in the datatip? better still, can someone help to modify this so that it can be called in the chart's dataTipFunction=""?



      public function handleMouseMove(e:MouseEvent):void {
              // Use coordinates to get HitData object of
              // current data point.
              var hda:Array =
              //ta is the ID for the textarea       
              if (hda[0]) {
                 ta.text = "Found data point " +
                      hda[0].chartItem.index + " (x/y):" +
                      Math.round(hda[0].x) + "," +
                      Math.round(hda[0].y) + "\n";
                 ta.text += "Expenses:" + hda[0].item.Expenses;
              } else {
                 ta.text = "No data point found  (x/y):" +
                      Math.round(e.currentTarget.mouseX) +
                      "/" + Math.round(e.currentTarget.mouseY);
