Custom messages on hover

I've searched among the community but I have not found anything like this, although I in my opinion, it should be a basic feature.

My concern is about showing custom messages when hovering over a chart.

For example:


When hovering bar LT5, I would like to see a message showing the complete name of LT5, wich is in another field LT_name

LT1Barn fulfillment
LT5Main house building
LT8Access road completion

So when hovering over LT5 I wanna see "Main house building" in a bubble or something.

So my question is if someone knows if:

  • This is a current development
  • This is a future development
  • This could be achieved by extensions (and which ones)
  • This is impossible to do

Thank you in advance!

Try to colour by dimension, but use the LT_Name dimension?

That could be a nice work around, but actually my chart is colored by expression (100% of progress is green and 0% is red with a ColorMix) so I can't color by dimension.

Add LT_Name as another expression in the chart and uncheck bar and check Text as Pop-up under the Display Options in Expression tab in properties.

I am not aware of a way to make custom hover messages currently in Qlik Sense.  This is something that can be done in QlikView.  Maybe one day.
