Show ToolTips on a Series (Report Builder and SSRS)

Topic Status: Some information in this topic is preview and subject to change in future releases. Preview information describes new features or changes to existing features in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2).

You can add a ToolTip to each data point on the series of a chart to display information related to the data point, such as the group name, the value of the data point, or the percentage of the data point relative to the series total when users hover over the data point in a rendered report.

You cannot add a ToolTip to a calculated series.

Note Note

You can create and modify report definitions (.rdl) in Report Builder and in Report Designer in SQL Server Data Tools. Each authoring environment provides different ways to create, open, and save reports and related items. For more information, see Designing Reports in Report Designer and Report Builder (SSRS) on the Web at microsoft.com.

To specify a ToolTip on each data point

  1. Right-click on the series or right-click on the field in the Values area, and click Series Properties.

  2. Click Series Data and, for the ToolTip property, type in a string or expression. You can use any chart-specific keyword to represent another element on the chart. For more information, see Formatting Data Points on a Chart (Report Builder and SSRS).
