Hi!

Is it possible to show custom tooltip message on mouse-over on chart points (for example bubbles on bubble chart)?

Thanks

    Hi Yuri,

    From my other post here

    http://scn.sap.com/thread/3276650

    You now know how to produce an object with a dynamic position. So the steps to achieve what you want are as follows:

    1. Turn on the drill-down feature, put it on 'mouse-over' option. That way you know when the user's mouse is over a point, and you know this point's x and y position.

    2. Create a Label component and put whatever mouse-over you want. Using the steps from the above link, make sure that this Label is positions next to the moused-over point.

    3. Now you have a mouseover label that will appear next to your mouse when you mouse-over the points. However, it won't disappear when you move your mouse away from the point. To fix this, add an invisible Toggle button behind the chart, whose data input is (-1, -1) and whose data output goes to the label's x position.

    Thus, when the mouse is over a point on your chart, the label will appear next to it. When your mouse is not over a point on your chart, the label will disappear thanks to the Toggle button.

    The content of the Label can be anything you want, including something dynamic. You can even use HTML formatting on it.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
