I want to change to font name & font size for all modifier tooltips (CursrorModifier, RolloverModifier and so on )

I discovered that all tooltips use TextBlocks with style HintDataItemsStyle. This is its definition:

  <!--  Label used in cursors  -->
  <Style x:Key="HintDataItemsStyle" TargetType="TextBlock">
      <Setter Property="apc:RelativeSourceBinding.AncestorType" Value="r:TemplatableControl"/>
      <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="{Binding Path=(apc:RelativeSourceBinding.Ancestor).Foreground, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" />
      <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="{Binding Path=(apc:RelativeSourceBinding.Ancestor).FontWeight, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" />
      <Setter Property="FontFamily" Value="{Binding Path=(apc:RelativeSourceBinding.Ancestor).FontFamily, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" />
      <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="{Binding Path=(apc:RelativeSourceBinding.Ancestor).FontSize, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" />
      <Setter Property="Margin" Value="{Binding Path=(apc:RelativeSourceBinding.Ancestor).Margin, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" />

So, I feel this would be easy to change font parameters just setting them to some parent (due to RelativeSourceBinding.Ancestor binding). But I cannot figure out which. I tried to change font size for series, for axes and even for surface – no result.

Hi Vlad,

Thanks for your question. It is bound to a TooltipControl control, which is actually a control that holds toolip content. This control, in turn, gets its default values from Themes.

So you can either provide an implicit style for TooltipControl or override relevant default colors in the applied Theme:

Please let me know if this helps,

Best regards,
