I have a client who has a database table which contains the tooltip text for each row in the database. She would like to have an image of a question mark so that when the image is "moused over"/"hovered over", the tooltip text is displayed without actually displaying the tooltip as a table column, she would like it to "pop up" only if the user decides to mouse over/hover over the image of the question mark, which is titled "Learn More About This Metric ...".
Column Header Tooltip (mouse over) in OBIEE
You can set Tooltip/mouse over functionality over column header of the
table. You can add HTML tag within column header. steps are -
1. Go to column format and check custom heading
2. add html tag like <b title="My Tooltip">My Column Header
3. Go to instanceconfig.xml
4. Edit it and add tag - *<HardenXSS>false </HardenXSS>*
5. Restart the services.
I know I'm close and it should be doable. Here's my situation. I have an analysis with one column which contains what the user is calling "rollover text" for a particular row in the table. I removed the table view and replaced it with a narrative view with @1. However, I only want this to be visible when I use the mouse to hover over a picture of a question mark (which I have embedded in a text box).
