The tooltip is an object that will appear on chart once you hoover over over an element of a chart, such as bar or line point. It is used in conjunction with a pointer. The user hovers the pointer over an item, without clicking it, and a tooltip appears—a small “hover box” with information about the item being hovered over.
The screenshot below shows the Tooltip function as well as an example of tooltip.
The tooltip can contain details about Weighted base, Respondent count and Non-weighted base. You can select these to show or hide with turning the button on/off.
The respondent count shows weighted data if the chart uses weight, and unweighted if the chart doesn’t use weight.
It is possible to define what content you’d like to show in the tooltip of the chart and it is possible to select if Axis and/or Legend label should be shown. By default, the tooltip shows the Axis labels.
The image below shows a tooltip with both Axis and Legend labels.
The image below shows the options available for tooltip in the chart setup window.
If a unit is shown in a series, like in the examples below (the % sign), then it will now also appear in the tooltip.
The unit will automatically appear in the tooltip if it is shown in the series.
Note: a tooltip generally shows one result per tooltip. If you would have your results combined in one tooltip (for example for your trends chart), this needs to be adjusted in the design of your template.
