Horizontal Bar Chart visual - tooltip issue

I am using the Horizontal Bar Chart visual for a while with satisfaction, but since te last version ( I cannot use te tooltip function anymore.
I used this visual to show a report page as a tooltip on mouseover, but when I do, nothing happens anymore.
Also the 'standard' tooltip on the fields pane doen't show any result.
When I use the standard bar chart, everything works fine, but without the extra features of the horizontal bar chart visual, which makes this visual very usefull.
Do other people experience the same issue? Can this be solved?




I requested the info regarding the issue from a correspondent developer.

As soon as he answer I will porvide details here.

So, it is a known issue and it is in a visual backlog.

However, I cannot provide ETA for it, sorry.

Hi @paulvcr - I had a look at the visual and can confirm that it's not working for me as expected either.

If I try this in the Power BI Service, I get the following error in the console:

VM3032:23 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'sourceEvent' of undefined
    at a.getCoordinates (<anonymous>:23:615248)
    at a.makeTooltipEventArgs (<anonymous>:23:614933)
    at SVGGElement.<anonymous> (<anonymous>:23:613926)
    at SVGGElement.<anonymous> (<anonymous>:23:17691)
a.getCoordinates @ VM3032:23
a.makeTooltipEventArgs @ VM3032:23
(anonymous) @ VM3032:23
(anonymous) @ VM3032:23

So, it looks like there is a specific issue with the code that prepares the tooltip. Hopefully this might be useful to the team in isolating and resolving.
