Background

Please download the necessary files here.

Using the code

A simple HTML

[html]
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title> Pie Chart widget with custom tooltip Using Chart.js</title>
</head>
<body></body>
</html>
[/html]

Included JavaScript file

[html]
<script src="Chart.js"></script>
<script src="http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
[/html]

Include UI Elements

[html]
<div id="canvas-holder">
<canvas id="chart-area1" width="50" height="50" />
</div>
<div id="canvas-holder">
<canvas id="chart-area2" width="300" height="300" />
</div>
<div id="chartjs-tooltip"></div>
[/html]

Call the Chart Function

[js]
window.onload = function () {
var ctx1 = document.getElementById("chart-area1").getContext("2d");
window.myPie = new Chart(ctx1).Pie(pieData);

var ctx2 = document.getElementById("chart-area2").getContext("2d");
window.myPie = new Chart(ctx2).Pie(pieData);
;
[/js]

Here we are loading the chart in the chart-area1 and chart-area2. As you can see in the preceding code, pieData is the data we will load into the chart.

[js]
var pieData = [{
value: 300,
color: "#F7464A",
highlight: "#FF5A5E",
label: "Monday"
}, {
value: 50,
color: "#46BFBD",
highlight: "#5AD3D1",
label: "Tuesday"
}, {
value: 100,
color: "#FDB45C",
highlight: "#FFC870",
label: "Wednesday"
}, {
value: 40,
color: "#949FB1",
highlight: "#A8B3C5",
label: "Thursday"
}, {
value: 120,
color: "#4D5360",
highlight: "#616774",
label: "Friday"
}];
[/js]

Properties

  • Value
  • Color
  • Highlight
  • Label
  • Here you can change the properties as you want.

    Now add the following style.

    [css]
    <style>
    #canvas-holder {
    width: 100%;
    margin-top: 50px;
    text-align: center;
    }

    #chartjs-tooltip {
    opacity: 1;
    position: absolute;
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, .7);
    color: white;
    padding: 3px;
    border-radius: 3px;
    -webkit-transition: all .1s ease;
    transition: all .1s ease;
    pointer-events: none;
    -webkit-transform: translate(-50%, 0);
    transform: translate(-50%, 0);
    }

    #chartjs-tooltip.below {
    -webkit-transform: translate(-50%, 0);
    transform: translate(-50%, 0);
    }

    #chartjs-tooltip.below:before {
    border: solid;
    border-color: #111 transparent;
    border-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, .8) transparent;
    border-width: 0 8px 8px 8px;
    bottom: 1em;
    content: "";
    display: block;
    left: 50%;
    position: absolute;
    z-index: 99;
    -webkit-transform: translate(-50%, -100%);
    transform: translate(-50%, -100%);
    }

    #chartjs-tooltip.above {
    -webkit-transform: translate(-50%, -100%);
    transform: translate(-50%, -100%);
    }

    #chartjs-tooltip.above:before {
    border: solid;
    border-color: #111 transparent;
    border-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, .8) transparent;
    border-width: 8px 8px 0 8px;
    bottom: 1em;
    content: "";
    display: block;
    left: 50%;
    top: 100%;
    position: absolute;
    z-index: 99;
    -webkit-transform: translate(-50%, 0);
    transform: translate(-50%, 0);
    }
    </style>
    [/css]

    Load the tool tip

    You can include the tool tip as follows.

    [js]
    Chart.defaults.global.customTooltips = function (tooltip) {

    // Tooltip Element
    var tooltipEl = $(‘#chartjs-tooltip’);

    // Hide if no tooltip
    if (!tooltip) {
    tooltipEl.css({
    opacity: 0
    });
    return;
    }

    // Set caret Position
    tooltipEl.removeClass(‘above below’);
    tooltipEl.addClass(tooltip.yAlign);

    // Set Text
    tooltipEl.html(tooltip.text);

    // Find Y Location on page
    var top;
    if (tooltip.yAlign == ‘above’) {
    top = tooltip.y – tooltip.caretHeight – tooltip.caretPadding;
    } else {
    top = tooltip.y + tooltip.caretHeight + tooltip.caretPadding;
    }

    // Display, position, and set styles for font
    tooltipEl.css({
    opacity: 1,
    left: tooltip.chart.canvas.offsetLeft + tooltip.x + ‘px’,
    top: tooltip.chart.canvas.offsetTop + top + ‘px’,
    fontFamily: tooltip.fontFamily,
    fontSize: tooltip.fontSize,
    fontStyle: tooltip.fontStyle,
    });
    };
    [/js]

    Please note that you can change your tooltip as needed.
