Hello, how do I remove the shadow from tooltips, generated by the VerticalSliceModifier?


  • Andrew Burnett-Thompson
    Hey Michael, there is a property on IThemeProvider (passed into SciChartSurface.create({ theme: … }) called shadowEffectColor however this seems to be ignored for the VerticalSliceModifier. I’ll create a bug and we will investigate next week. Best regards, Andrew

This fix/feature is done and released in v3.2.525. If you set shadowEffectColor to “transparent” it will remove the drop shadow on all tooltips.

sciChartSurface.create("div-id", { 
    theme: { SciChartJSLightTheme(), shadowEffectColor: "Transparent" }

If you want to be a bit more specific, then for VerticalSliceModifier you must first add the modifier, then for each renderableSeries to

 verticalSliceModifier.getRolloverProps(renderableSeries).shadowColor = "transparent".

Again, you have to do this after the modifier and series have been added to the chart, otherwise the RolloverProps will not exist.
