Customize Scenario Tooltip

Wyn Enterprise: Customize Scenario Tooltip

Tooltips allow users to display the selected data information for plots by hovering over the dashboard scenario.

In Wyn Application, you can customize the tooltip based on the data binding items and the appearance. By default, the tooltip displays all data roles in the dashboard scenarios. You can customize the tooltip by removing some binding items using the Data Binding tab and customize the appearance using the Inspector tab. Follow the steps below to customize the tooltip.

You can customize the tooltip while creating a dashboard or you can open the existing one where you want to add the customized tooltip and edit it. We are creating a Column Chart scenario and customizing the tooltip in this example.

  1. On the Document Portal, go to Create (+) > Create Dashboard.

Add Column Chart Scenario

  1. From the Data Visualization tab on the left of the dashboard designer, drag and drop a Column Chart on the design area.

  2. From the Data Binding tab on the right, select Retail Dataset, which is already available to us. We will use this chart to analyze the revenue generated vs year.

  3. Drag and drop the data fields as follows and see how the chart title is automatically generated.

Note: For the charts having a Tooltip data role panel, you can customize the tooltip.

But scenarios like KPI, Gauge, Indicator, and KPI Matrix do not have a Tooltip data role panel. So, in these cases, you cannot customize the tooltip.

Tooltip for Data Tables and Pivot Tables

For Data Tables and Pivot Tables, go to the Inspector tab. Under the TOOLTIP section, there is a property 'Tooltip Mode', with the following two options:

  • None

  • Show

None is the default option.

Tootip Mode For Data and Pivot Tables

You can select the Tooltip Mode as "Show", to view the tooltip after a short pause of the mouse hovering over the cell, else select Tooltip Mode as "None", if you do not want to display the tooltip.

If you select the Tooltip Mode as "None" and Click Action under the INTERACTION section as "Show Tooltip", then the tooltip will be displayed only when you click on any cell in the table and not on hovering over the cell.

Note: When both Click Action and Tooltip Mode are set to ‘Show Tooltip’, then on a click gesture to one cell, the tooltip will not display with a short pause of hovering over other cells. When you close the tooltip dialog that is triggered by the click action, hovering over other cells will still display the tooltip.
