How do I turn off chart tool tips? Preferably in a dashboard in the source XML.

Path Finder

I have a pie chart trellis in a dashboard that I want to drill down into. But hovering over a pie chart causes a gigantic tooltip to cover up the pie chart.

Here's my set of charts.

And here's what happens immediately on mouseover.

How can I turn tool tips off so I can actually access my chart?

@ksextonmacb, you can disable Tooltip using CSS by setting the visibility to hidden for tooltip text for Trellis chart. visibility:hidden;

If you want tolltip to be hidden in specific panel you can do the same using Panel ID (#trellisChart1 in the example below)

      <style>
        #trellisChart1 .highcharts-tooltip{
          visibility:hidden;
        }
      </style>

You can also save the CSS Style as hide_tooltip.css and include the same in multiple dashboards. Following is the run anywhere example based on Splunks _internal Index and hides all Tooltip text in the dashboard.

  <row>
    <panel>
    <html>
      <style>
        .highcharts-tooltip{
          visibility:hidden;
        }
      </style>
    </html>
      <chart  id="trellisChart1">
        <search>
          <query>index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd log_level!="INFO"
| stats count(eval(log_level=="WARN")) as WARN count(eval(log_level=="ERROR")) as ERROR by component
| head 5</query>
          <earliest>-24h@h</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
          <sampleRatio>1</sampleRatio>
        </search>
        <option name="charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.overflowMode">ellipsisNone</option>

This hides the tooltips, which is exactly what I originally asked for, but it doesn't allow clicking through them onto the chart.

For that you need your css to have "pointer-events: none", like below.

.highcharts-tooltip{
         visibility: hidden;
         pointer-events: none;
       }

This answer's still right, just leaving more information for the next person that has this issue.

As far as you want to completely disable drilldown along with tooltip. However, I feel drilldown still works as it works with the run anywhere search I had provided in the other answer.

https://answers.splunk.com/answers/551802/how-can-i-get-drill-down-working-for-a-trellis-cha.html

Let me have a look at that answer to ensure that drilldown is working the way you expect.

@ksextonmacb, For enabling clicking through tooltip area the same has to be overriden through svg related CSS

       <style>
         #dev_trellis .highcharts-tooltip{
           visibility:hidden;
           top:-9999px !important;
         }
         #dev_trellis .highcharts-tooltip path{
           d: path('') !important;
         }   
       </style>

PS: top:-9999px is existing logic which seems to plot tooltip text outside defined area. This ensures Tooltip text is not displayed.
I have added svg path to be empty d:path(''), so that Tooltip box is not plotted. Please try out these and confirm. I have kept visibility:hidden; just to ensure that Tooltip is not displayed at all. However, this is not required with above two CSS styles.

Please check and confirm.

Can this be done in simple XML without using CSS?

@jackreeves, in the above example CSS has been applied within Simple XML using <style> tag withing <html> panel. This does not require you to apply a separate CSS file and reboot/refresh Splunk environement. Refer to snippet below

   <row>
     <panel>
     <html depends="$alwaysHideCSSStyle$">
       <style>
         .highcharts-tooltip{
           visibility:hidden;
         }
       </style>
     </html>

Hi @niketnilay, how could I apply this to only a single chart/panel? the above applies to the whole dashboard. or preferably, how could I just move the tooltip to the side so it doesn't cover the chart?
