Customising Chart Pop Up Information


Here is an example on how you can add more information to the pop up message box that appears when you hover over a chart.

I've include a detailed explanation in my blog Pop Ups To Be Proud Of | qlikcentral.

we can also create such pop ups with using a special expression rather we can use dual() with all the display things  as strings and numeric value as the second argument.


Num(Sum(Spend), '$#,##0.00;$#,##0')&


Spend % = '&

Num(Sum(Spend)/Sum(Total Spend), '#,##0.00%')


Num(Sum(Spend), '$#,##0.00;$#,##0')


This is one such example where I am using in our project , where the bars takes the second argument value for rendering bars and first argument for pop ups.

Thanks Kiran,

Another great way of improving pop up information!

How did you get the barchart to start at the Low value and finish at the High Value, instead of just displaying the difference.

Hi Andrew,

If you go to the expression and expand it (by clicking on the + Icon) there are a number of additional properties you can set. One is the Offset typically used when creating waterfall charts. Here I have increased the starting point by the Min value which creates this effect.

Here's another example of mine working with Offset

This has worked for me except there were a couple of things that were not obvious and were different in my chart. I have mine working but maybe I missed something:

1: I have a Line chart with 4 lines. The chart type must be changed to Combo Chart for this to work.

2: The additional expression for the pop-up text showed up in the legend. In your QVW it doesn't.  How did you get it to not display it? I had to check Bar and Invisible for it to display in the pop-up and not in the legend.

Hi Richard,

This is some great information you got!

I am look to change the outlook as the current pop-up label look too dull.

Do you know if we can customise the background and colors of the pop-up labels to look like the chart below?
