In the first example, there are values transmitted from the dataset in the tooltip template (read the details).

In the second example, tooltips are created with the function that receives data objects.

In the third example, an automatic tooltip is enabled for a datatable (see the details on the Datatable tooltip).

In the forth example, the tooltip is set as an object with the tooltip configuration. The template of the tooltip can be set as a string or a function.
