Hello all!  Wondering if there is a way to configure he Help Text to get the value from external source.  For example, when the mouse pointer is over the icon, the text displayed will come from a text file somewhere on a share.  Thanks!

Re: Help Text sourced externally

I attached a QVW with one method to accomplish this.  It reads the txt file at load time, stores the contents in a variable, which is referenced by the Help Text expression in the chart properties.  -Isaiah
