Is it possible to have a clickable URL in a table that is in a tooltip

Hi,

 

So I have a tooltip that is using a table visualization to facility help text functionality. So basically I have a card visualization that on hover pops up a tooltip window. The tooltip itself is a table visualization. I know it's possible to embed a clickable url in a table but when I try to click the url when the tooltip comes up I can't seem to do it.

 

Thanks

Re: Is it possible to have a clickable URL in a table that is in a tooltip

Hi,

 

Unfortunately no the workaround is not really what I was looking for. I did some further searching and I belive the problem I'm actually facing is that tooltips are non-interactive, even if they're customized using report tooltip pages. So basically no matter what I put in the report tooltip, the user will not be able to interact with it.

 

This has created multiple problems for me as:

A) the URL's I created can't be clicked 

B) The dynamic nature of the content means that if it exceeds the report tooltip page size and a scrollbar is enabled, the user will not be able to interact with said scrollbar

 

I think the main issue is if they are going to let us create custom tooltip pages it would be nice if we could interact with them and maybe control how long they popup for. I think I will have to resort to using another method to do what I want.

 

Thanks
