Power BI – Tip for Completely hiding hover text

In our last engagement we had a requirement to completely hide the hover text in a Power BI report.

In Power BI, we can disable the hover text by setting the Tool-tip property to No.

Mentioned below screenshot shows how the hover text looks with Tool-Tip property set to “Yes”. Please note that most of the data / columns in the report have been deliberately hidden.

If we mark the Tool-tip as “Off”, we get the following result


Hover Text

Review that even though we don’t get a Tool-tip with the values in different fields, we still get a hover text on the control.

If we want to completely remove the hover text as well, we can do it by following the mentioned below steps

a) Set the Tool-tip property back to “Yes”.

b) Set the transparency to 100%.

Save the report. Now when a user tries to hover over, there wont be any tool-tip present.
