Tool tips in tables

  • 1.  Tool tips in tables

    Is it possible to create a tool tip for a specific column of data in a table and only have it show when you hover over that column/value?  I have a table that shows the status of Inventory in multiple columns. I created a tool tip just for inventory in transit. It shows shipping information such as arrival date at port, shipping ref number, etc. My problem is that the tool tip also shows up if you hover over any other value in the table. I only want it to show if you hover over Inventory in Transit. Is this possible?

    Hi Jennifer ,

    As per my understanding you might have enabled Tool Tip option using format pane for mentioned table which is resulting in showing up all the row values as list. If you want to see only one column , you might need to disable that tool tip option in format pane and try again.

    I did do that per a video I watched. I must not have fully understood it. So can I create a tool tip page and have it only show on one column?

    I don't think I have a clear understanding how these work. I have messed around with it and I can't seem to get it to work. :(
