Custom pop-up message at charts

Hi Everyone!

Our costumer would like to see some explanation at all charts and objects.

It would be the best solution, if he/she got a pop-up like window when his/her mouse is over the objects.

Is it possible to create either a pop-up like box, or any on-mouse based explanation guide?

I can't find any extension related the topic.

Thanks!

Best regards,

G.

Re: Custom pop-up message at charts

Hi Undergrinder,

I had a similar requirement, So I built a custom pop up which will explain all the KPI's in a sheet. Once clicked on the ? button, a pop up slides down with the explanations for all KPI's on the screen.

Please find attached a sample for this functionality attached.I have only removed the images from the images folder. You can replicate something like this for your purpose.

Hope this helps! ! !

Re: Custom pop-up message at charts

Hi there,

The workaround we use - 'Text and image' chart. Make as small as possible.

In a View mode hover over the chart until you see 'full screen ' function. Click on it, go to Edit mode, type whatever you need, exit Edit mode. You're done!

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Linas

Hi Linas!

Thank your suggestion it is useful.

I've already tried this method, but it consumes more place in grid than it would be acceptable.

An other workaorund is for custom explanation message is the following:

  1. Create a variable in load script, e.g. vShowMessage
  2. Import variable button like extension
  3. Place every object subtitle the message as formula like this: if($(vShowMessage)=1,'Some explanation','')
  4. The explanation text will appaer in subtitle, if the user click on the button.

Re: Custom pop-up message at charts

Hi Sangram!

The modal solution works good at 1.1, but there is a problem with Qlik Sense 2.1.1.

modal_Z_index.png

The modal appear, but the sense object is still active behind the modal.

It is like z-index problem, but the edit of CSS don't solve the problem.

Could suggest me some trick to solve this?

Thank you very much!

UPDATE:

It seems that, the modal works well only in parent object in QS 2.1.1, in other cases has problem.

Re: Custom pop-up message at charts

Hi undergrinder,

It could be the z-index as you have mentioned. May be you should some other bootstrap. I haven't got a chance to look at this. I will look into this as well.
