Adding tooltips to a custom visual

Hi,

 

I would like to add tooltips to a custom visualization I am currently working on. i have been reading:

 

https://github.com/Microsoft/powerbi-visuals-utils-tooltiputils/blob/master/docs/api/tooltipservice....

 

But It seems to me the tooltipservice has a dependency to the d3 library, but my visualization doesn't use d3, it's more like an advanced label.

 

interface ITooltipServiceWrapper {
    addTooltip<T>(selection: d3.Selection<any>, getTooltipInfoDelegate: (args: TooltipEventArgs<T>) => VisualTooltipDataItem[], getDataPointIdentity?: (args: TooltipEventArgs<T>) => ISelectionId, reloadTooltipDataOnMouseMove?: boolean): void;
    hide(): void;
}

 

Can I use the Tooltipservice without d3? If so can you pintpoint me to a basic example of adding tooltips to a visualization without d3?

 

Kind regards Erik

We don't have any basic sample but we would recommend to take a look at how TooltipUtils work with TooltipService directly.

Hi @erikito,

 

You're right. TooltipService from TooltipUtils depends on d3v3.

Tooltip API can be used directly by firing move, show, hide methods of internal TooltipService.
