SharpPlot.AddHints Method (String[])

Apply an array of hints to all the XValues in the first series.

public void AddHints(
    string[] hintText

This is the commonest use of this method. An array of descriptions may be read from a database, and used to add extra information to the plotted values.

An alternative use is to add data-value information to 3D charts such as the Cloud chart (3D-scatter). It can be hard to see the exact position of the points against the axes, so it may be useful to hint each data-point with a string showing its x,y,z value. The user can then read off exact values with the mouse.
