    OnhoverTooltip IR Report

    Gus C

      Apex 3.2

      Theme 15

      IE 8

       

      Does anybody know how to display a tooltip when you hover over an interactive report column.

      I tried using span but the html is exported when the report is downloaded to excel.

      I have found a few answers, but all use jquery.

      I am not allowed to use jquery for this application

          I tried using span but the html is exported when the report is downloaded to excel.

          What kind of tooltip: basic title attribute or something more complex? Where does the information to be displayed come from?

           

          How interactive is "interactive": can users select columns?

            It will be a basic description of the column.

            There is the help attribute on the columns, but you must first click the column and then click the help icon.

            If possible I would like to display this help, when the user hovers over the column title.

             

            Yes the user can select columns.

                Hi,

                 

                It might be bit hard do that with APEX 3.2, because IR do not trigger any events when you e.g. filter or paginate report.

                 

                It is possible do this on APEX 3.2 by overwriting APEX default JavaScript function, but I recommend that you just use IR column help.

                But if you really want do this, this might help

                http://sourceforge.net/projects/htmldbquery/

                 

                When you download code, there is sample application and if I recall correctly, there is example for IR heading tooltip

                 

                Regards,
                Jari

                  I am not allowed to use Jquery with this application.

                  I will tell the users  that this is not possible with Apex 3.2 and we can only use the standard help process

                   

                  Thanks again
