Background Image - Enable Tooltip

score 29
You have not voted. Active

WHAT:

Allow background images to show tooltip on mouse hover.

    (Background images are added to a worksheet using dummy 'X-Y' coordinates as opposed to dashboard image objects)

 

WHY:

Currently several workarounds are possible (but with its demerits)

a) Customized shapes can mimic an image & provide tooltips but (Demerit: image resolution is poor)

b) Images added on a dashboard can be high resolution, but (Demerit: cant provide tooltip)

c) Tooltip may appear besides a background image if the map type is for ex: bar, circle, shape etc. but (Demerit: disoriented & not-elegant)
