Hoverinfo on Dash DataTable


I did not the answer to this question up untill now so I’m trying it over here:

Is it possible to show text when hovering over a cell in the DataTable in a specific column or the entire DataTable in general? I know it is possible for cells/bars in plotly charts but did not figure it out for Dash DataTable yet…


Hey @jeroenvh,

isn’t the property tooltips what you are looking for ?

or Dash DataTable - Tooltips

I never tried it but it seems to be what you are looking for.

Great thanks! Need to figure out how to use it properly as you can’t directly use the value in the cell or row/column in the text but need to define it yourself, but it’s at least a start!
