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 ...".
Any thoughts? We're on OBIEE v184.108.40.206.2.
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).
