Geospatial Tooltip length

Hi!

 

I'm trying to see a tooltip on Geospatial Portal, with a WMPS service, based on an attributte that has a large content.

Based on the tests that 've made, it seems that the tootip size it limited to 255 characters and the remaining text is truncated.

 

If we see the attributes window, it shows that attribute full content.

 

Is there a way to change this tooltip behavior?

Re: Geospatial Tooltip length

Have you set your tooltip for the WMPS by setting your GeoMedia workspace's map window tooltip like so?

There might be some magic happening in GeoMedia Desktop which WebMap isn't aware of, that has this effect.

Fortunately, this is easy to overcome, as if you set your map window tooltip to be an expression simply referencing the attribute without any other processing, everything will show up fine:

Re: Geospatial Tooltip length

We already figured it out how to overcome this issue.

In our case it needed a CAST in GeoMedia Tooltip expression for it to work properly. The attributte directly didn't work.

 

Thanks anyway for your response.
