Hi Cristina,

The problem here seems to be that ContourPlot has built into it a
tooltip that tells you which equation the contour lines correspond
to.  This actually was what I thought was a bug in my example, but I
realize that it is a "feature" of ContourPlot.  I have to think of how
to turn that off, as that tooltip seems to preempt any other tooltip
that is imposed on the plot as I did.

....Ah, this seems to do the trick, I think, using the option
ContourLabels -> None]:

With[{plot =
   ContourPlot[Arg[Gamma[x + I*y]] == 0, {x, -10, 10}, {y, -10, 10},
    PlotPoints -> 20, ContourLabels -> None]},
 Dynamic@Tooltip[
   plot, (With[{z = Complex @@ MousePosition["Graphics"]}, {z, Gamma
[z]}])]]

Yes, if you look up the ContourLabels documentation, this is indeed
what's needed.

Does this work for you?

Best regards,

David

David,

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately, this shows the value of Gamma
at all points other than the points on the solution curves given by Arg
[Gamma[x+I*y]]==0. When the mouse goes over the points on the curve
the tooltip gives only "Arg[Gamma[x+I*y]]==0. But I am interested in
the value of Gamma precisely at the points on the curves above.

Best wishes,

Cristina

Here is the start of one sort of approach.  It seems ot have some
bugginess though.  But perhaps this will get you going:

With[{plot =
  ContourPlot[Arg[Gamma[x + I*y]] == 0, {x, -10, 10}, {y, -10, 10},
   PlotPoints -> 20]},
 Dynamic@Tooltip[
  plot,
  (With[{z = Complex @@ MousePosition["Graphics"]},
    {z, Gamma[z]}])
  ]
 ]



I suspect that someone else will give you a more stable approach....
