    Viz of the day - How to insert image in tooltip?

    Dominique Trincat

      Hi all,


      if you take a look at this Viz of the day: https://public.tableau.com/s/gallery/tokyo-earthquake-risks

      you may notice that the tooltip are displaying little square images which give a very useful information.


      My question is then simple: how does it work?

      I looked over the web and didn't find how to insert something else than text. Even the tableau knowledge base says that the ability to insert image in tooltip is not yet built in.

      I tried by inserting an image hyperlink but I have either the hyperlink value (https://myserver/myimage.png) or it will open in a browser...

      I suppose then that a hack was used but can't figure out how... If someone knows the trick...


      Thanks in advance.
