I'm trying to find the easiest way to have a tooltip show up when you hover over a plotband. The events part is fine, I can access mouseover and out but I need to find a way to display a tooltip in the same style as the default look and feel for Highcharts.
Here's a quick example. I need the text "Show me on hover in a tooltip" to display as a tooltip styled the same as Highcharts default somewhere based on the mouse coordinates?
I've had a look at the docs and couldn't find any help.
Thanks in advance.
Here's one solution I've put together in JSFiddle, although it's a bit of a hack.
Add the following line to the mouseover event:
This displays the tooltip for an appropriately placed point in a hidden series.
A custom tooltip formatter then returns the required text.
