Hover over in R visuals

Hi All,

 

Is there any way to have hover over functionality in R visuals? i.e, when we move the cursor over R visuals (ex: line chart), the values respective needs to be displayed. Cant we use ggvis packages Power BI Desktop & Pro?

 

Regards

Lal

Hi Lal,

 

R sends the visual back as image. As long as this is the case there will be no option to have hover effects as seen on the 'regular' visuals. ggvis visuals and other R libraries who do support hovering require additional files for this to work.  It would be a cool feature thoughSmiley Happy

Power BI has in the backlog R custom visuals which produce HTML.

So that means we wont be able to implement hovering in R visuals (in PBI)?

If this is not feasible, Is there any way to add data labels in R visuals?

We are working on implementing "hover over" capability for R-powered custom visuals.

Hi @pk_123

 

Power BI have HTML-based R -custom visuals.  For example basd on htmlWidgets and plotly. 

Here is short tutorial:
https://github.com/Microsoft/PowerBI-visuals/blob/master/RVisualTutorial/CreateRHTML.md

 

Here is long tutorial (still under development):

Half of the R-customv visuals in store support these features now
