        seriesClick: function(e){
          var positionX = e.originalEvent.x.client,
              positionY = e.originalEvent.y.client,
              value = e.value;

          $("#customTooltip").show().css('position', 'absolute').css("top", positionY).css("left", positionX).text(value);
        }
      });
