    How to add guiding lines to an area graph?

    Sagar Agarwal

      Hi All,


      I have created an area graph similar to below. I want to add the vertical + horizontal guiding lines which move along with the cursor. How do I do this?

          Hello Sagar;


          I don't think Tableau supports crosshairs, but you can get drop lines which will clarify levels for your user.


          Highlight the line on your graph

          Right click

          Select Drop lines

          Choose Show Drop lines

          You'll get something like this:



          Hope this helps get you there!


          Some problems: this is not an on hover event; the user needs to click on the cell to see the drop lines. I'm not sure if this will be a game-changer for ya.
