From the 4.3 version we can set Tooltip Links in the Vitara Charts. When we hover the cursor on any vitara chart, vitara chart will display a tooltip. We can set links to the text displayed within the tooltip. All vitara charts support tooltip links feature except KPI Ring, Grid and Micro Charts.

Step 1:

Hover the cursor on any of the vitara chart, chart will show Edit button. Click on the Edit button to open the properties window.

Step 2:

Open the Tooltip menu. As shown in the below screenshot, in the tooltip menu there are two icons which are related to link and unlink feature.

In the tooltip editor window select the tooltip text for which the link needs to be added. Or manually enter text in the tooltip window (e.g, ‘click here for detailed report’), select the text and click on link icon as shown in the below screenshot. Then a new ‘Enter a URL to link’ window will open.

Step 3:

In the ‘Enter a URL to link’ window, enter the link URL. The URL can be either a link to a report or a document/dossier or a website. Now click on the Add button and then click on Apply button..
For example, in the below screenshot, a link to a microstrategy report is added.

Step 4:

Hover the cursor on the chart to display tooltip, click on the text for which the link was applied. Then the link URL will be opened in a new tab within the browser. In this way, user can add as many links as possible.

By using macros, tooltip links can be advanced to support URL API with dynamically changing urls.

Follow the same steps 1, 2, 3, 4 described in the previous section to add the links.

For example, you have a dossier with attributes year, category and metrics profit, lats year’s profit. And if you want see the quarterly data for a particular year in another document/dossier, then the link that needs to added should be in the below way.

Macros for year attribute is used in the above URL, so that clicking on tooltip link of a particular data point will pass the respective year value to answer the ‘year prompt’ in the target document/dossier.

In the below screenshot, when we hovered on to year:2015 tooltip link, then the year in URL API also got updated to 2015.

After clicking on the tooltip link of year:2015, the quarterly data for the year 2015 will be displayed in the target document/dossier.

Removing the links can be done in two ways

  1. In the tooltip editor window, select the text on which link is applied then click on the Unlink icon. This removes the link applied particularly only to that text.
  2. Without selecting the tooltip text, directly click on the unlink button. This removes all the links applied.

Click on Apply button.
