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?
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 though
Power BI have HTML-based R -custom visuals. For example basd on htmlWidgets and plotly.
Here is short tutorial:
Here is long tutorial (still under development):
Half of the R-customv visuals in store support these features now
