Make tooltip text selectable + suitable html generator for html tooltips + continue to show tooltip until tooltip-are-mouse-leave event
As for me tooltip functionality is quite restrictive and not very convenient for now (5.0.14).
1. I cannot select text on tooltip.
I found some examples where we just copy original tooltip, show it and then do e.preventPropagation for mouseDown, mouseup and mousemove events on tooltip area.
but maybe it can be done by some parameters?
Suitable html generator for html tooltip - it is inconvenient to generate html with concatenation of string na respective params. And hard to apply event listeners on elements of html-tooltip. Maybe some helper functions to add?
continue to show tooltip until tooltip-are-mouse-leave event - actually it can be done with e.preventPropagation for mouseDown, mouseup and mousemove events on tooltip area.
What do you think? It will allow:
1. Use html tooltips in very quick and convenient way
2. Make tooltips dymanic generation with eventListeners, buttons, changes its view in action (Show small tooltip with 'more' button to increase it, for example)
3. Make it possible to copy text on tolltip
Actually it seems like you are looking for something more than a simple popover text display, especially since you mention buttons and events etc, I think it would be better for you to go with a completely custom implementation. You can hook up to point events to get started: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/rsvkc3x3/
Is there any pointer/reference for Custom Implementation of tooltip for highcharts
