Like Qlikview "Text as Pop-up" option is not available in Qliksense

Hi,

Custom popup labels on bar chart

The default pop-up for a QlikView bar chart is not always the most friendly. It shows the values for dimensions and expressions in the form:


  Dimension 1 = Value
  Dimension 2 = Value
  Expression = Value

Now, we may not like this popup and wish to display the values differently or add different formats. We may even want to include additional information.

Well, you can. There are a couple of steps:

Step 1
For your existing expression, make sure that the "Text as Popup" option is turned off.

Step 2
Add a new Expression that calculates out the correct string that you want to display in your popop with all the correct formatting. For this expression, turn on that "Text as popup" option. But we don't want the chart trying to display a real bar for this expression so take off the "Bar" option (the icon for the expression will change from the Bar icon to a text bubble icon).

Step 3
We need to stop the default popup - on the Presentation tab, turn off the "Pop-up labels" option.

Thanks,

Thanks, this is nice to have but I need a measure as a popup.

I have a stacked bar chart and I for each part of the bar I want to show it's % of the total (total = the whole bar) as a popup.

However it is not possible with default charts in qliksense.

And also I don't remember exist any extension for this.
