Tooltip Panel Element
The Tooltip Panel element is a flexible option for including more complex tooltips. This topic describes how to add a panel element.
You can add the Tooltip Panel element as a child beneath these elements:
- Column Cell
- Data Table Column
As an element, the Tooltip Panel can have a variety of child
elements, allowing you to get more creative with what you include in the
The example above shows an Image element with a
Tooltip Panel element placed beneath it, with a child
Label element. The Tooltip Panel has a full set of attributes that
can be used to customize the tooltip. Let's see what it can look like:
In the example shown above, we see a Tooltip Panel that appears when the mouse cursor hovers over the "help" icon. Style has been used to color the panel background and give it a drop shadow, and the child Label element has been set to HTML format so that the help text will be displayed as an unordered list with bullets. Image and Label elements now include "HTML Attribute Params", enabling you to apply your application to work with other frameworks or libraries easier. Depending on the element you add the HTML Attribute Params to, there are additional parameters for you to specify. The IMG element includes "alt", "style", and "title" parameters, while the Label element allows you to include "Id", "type", and "value". If an attribute was set in both Element and HTML attribute params, the one set in the HTML attribute params will be ignored.
The Tooltip Panel element has Condition and Security Right ID attributes, so its appearance can be controlled dynamically. For example, separate sets of tooltips for different users are possible.
A variety of elements, including Charts, Gauges, Images, SubReports, and others, can be included as children of the Tooltip Panel, as shown in the example above, giving you the opportunity to make your tooltip contain more than just text.
