Tooltip Formatting on Appearance Tab in Qlik Sense

Is it possible to format the tooltip in Qlik Sense when the tooltip is set in the colors and legends? 

I tried adding a num function and it did not work.

num(count([Field])/count(total [Field]),'#.##%')

Hi Michael,

Unfortunately that not possible at the moment. But saying so, Its always possible to develop a tooltip (an extension) and make use of it in your document. With the latest version of Qliksense, few of the popular Stylesheets like bootstrap can be made use of with out any conflicts with Qliksense styling and this makes it even better.

Thanks,

Sangram.

Hi Michael,

In Qliksense, you do not have to use an expression like above, but instead you can use the number formatting option in the properties panel under the measure. You can specify the format as this:

#.00%

Thanks,

Also,

Colouring and appearance formatting of a tooltip is not yet available, but you can build an extension to mock it.

Sangram,

I'm not in the measures panel.  I'm adding a fourth tool tip measure on a bubble chart.  I have formatted my three measures as I like using the properties panel under each measure, however, the fourth tool tip I've added using the color and legends panel won't change format. There's no properties panel to set formatting so I'm using a num function but it's not working.

Hi Michael,

The scatter plot only takes 3 measures, the fourth measure cannot be added here.

Yes that's correct.  This is why I'm using the colors and legends panel.

Yes its better to represent the fourth dimension as a colour but make sure you do not use the colour by expression as you wont be able to display a legend.

Do you know if it's possible to format the value that shows in the tooltip from the colors and legend expression?
