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:
For your existing expression, make sure that the "Text as Popup" option is turned off.
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).
We need to stop the default popup - on the Presentation tab, turn off the "Pop-up labels" option.
