When I plot a curve using ContourPlot, and then move the cursor near the plotted line, a pop-up window (tooltip) with the corresponding function formula appears.

Very often I find it distracting, especially when the pop-up window is large and I want to get the coordinates.

How can I disable this?

In ContourPlot, ContourLabels -> None.

    $\begingroup$ @Agnieszka Try replacing Tooltip with (#&) in the output (see ReplaceAll). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, but I don't understand your last comment. Assume that I have plotted ContourPlot[x^2+y^2==1,{x,-1,1},{y,-1,1}]. What should I do afterwards to prevent pop-up window? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Did you look up ReplaceAll? plot /. Tooltip -> (#&). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You should read about graphics, see Tooltip (under Scope section in documentation page), ReplaceAll, and pure functions to understand why this works. I am assuming you already know that everything is an expression. $\endgroup$

@Agnieszka
The idea of Szabolcs can be used this way:

p = ContourPlot[x^2+y^2==1,{x,-1,1},{y,-1,1}];
p /. Tooltip -> (#&)
