How can I add a text value to a tool tip?

Hello,

 

I have longitude and latitude in a data file along with a point number, person's name and a few other attributes related to that point on the map.

 

I am able to plot each point on the map, but I am trying to add informaiton about each point to the tool tip.

 

When I put NAME on to tool tip, it's counting it vs. giving me the name associated with that point on the map.

 

Does the tool tip area always have to be a measure or a number of some sort? Can we not put text fields into a tool tip?

 

Thanks in advance!

You have to create a MEASURE... (and use it in the tooltips)

 

Names List Measure = CONCATENATEX ( VALUES(Table[NameColumn]), Table[NameColumn],", ")

 

This will work for 1 or many names associated with that location! Smiley Happy

Thanks!! this worked. I'm used to Tableau where you can put anything you want on the tool tip and format it as needed. This was a bit trickier to figure out! thanks so much.

Re: How can I add a text value to a tool tip?

I'd like to do something similar - can I concatonate two text strings for a visual (and add a linefeed between them)...

 

i.e.

 

text 1

text 2
