In this example, we have a table chart with a truncated text column. We want to be able to click the text column to display the full text.
- Add a new Hidden Variable. Be sure to check the Can Drilldown checkbox.
- Open the Chart Settings for your table chart, and switch to the Drilldown tab. Select the current dashboard, and map your text column to the new Hidden Variable.
- Add a Text element (Add Element > Text) to your dashboard. In the text input, enter the name of your hidden variable, including curly braces.
Click a row in your table, and the text field will be populated with the content of the text field.
Note: You may need to refresh your browser after the creation of the Text field in order for the changes to take effect.
