In my earlier posts, I explained how to create a blinking text component and a i-Pad like on-off toggle button for BusinessObjects Dashboards 4.0. In this post, I shall describe the new add-on I developed and shared in code exchange to achieve tooltip in a label component.
While a wonderful blog by Sara G Iyer shows a simple way to achieve the same using existing components, this add-on offers provision to significantly enhance the tooltip in terms of look and feel. Initially, this add-on has only the option to manually specify the tooltip text or to bind it to a cell in the excel model. This uses the default look of the tooltip. But soon, in my next posts, I shall be enhancing the same with more styles 🙂 .
Here are the features of this add-on :
This tab offers following options:
- Manually specify the Label text or bind it to a cell in excel model.
- Manually specify the tooltip text or bind it to a cell in excel model.
This tab offers dynamic visibility option for the component similar to the other existing components.
How does it look like in the canvas ?
You can find the full flex project here along with the add-on(xlx) file. Wait for my next blog for new tooltip styles.
Happy dashboarding 🙂
