I am using plotly for displaying a graph , I am facing one issue . When I hover over a data point , I get a pop up displaying the coordinate values of the point of hovering , thus blocking the view of the other data points . I have used the hovermode attribute as well , but still pop up doesnot disappear . Also setting hovermode to ‘off’ will also not work , as like that I will not be able to get coordinate value at all . Actually I want something like when I hover over the data point , the values of x and y coordinate are displayed on the axis (for BOTH X and Y axis) or the are displayed outside the plot . This will prevent me from blocking view to other data points , when hovering onto one of the data points .
Thanks alot in advance
Thanks for the reply . Following the example you suggested , still I get tpop uos (displaying x and y cordinates) on the plot . when I set
hovermode:false the , pop-ups disappear , but at the same time the x , y values displayed below also disappear . What I want is that the x ,y values (displayed below ) should appear , but pop ups dont appear (to prevent occulusion of other data points).
It would be really helpful alot to me
you should try setting the trace
hoverinfo attribute to
Thanks ! Can you suggest how to get value of error as well(I am using error bars , so pop up used to display corrdinate value + error value ) .Just like
d.x give value of x coordinate , how can I get the value of error in x using the same (actually
d.error_x is not working for me)
