    Hi guys,

    I am creating a kind of report by generating ImageMap hotspots dynamically and faced with two problems:

    1. I can't find out how to assign each hotspot to ImageMap
    2. Don't know how to assign a tooltip to each hotspot
    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance ;)

    Check out this MSDN reference for how to add hotspots to an image map (and also set tooltip):

    Well I'd like to answer your questions with an example.

    Suppose I have an ImageMap with Id as "ImageMap1" and a Rectangle Hotspot "RectHotspot"

    then to add a new hotspot to ImageMap1 I would write


    and If I need a tooltip to appear when the user hovers the mouse over the rectangular region defined by the RectHotspot then I would write

    RectHotspot.AlternateText = "Custom Tooltip";

    Remember, you should set AlternateText property of Recthotspot before adding it to the Hotspots Collection of the ImageMap.

    I hope this post will help you.

    in the case where the hotspot is already declared in the page :

    ImageMap1.HotSpots.Item(0).AlternateText ="Custom Tooltip"

    (using hotspots collection)
