How to create detailed chart description

    I’m looking for a way to add a detailed description (ie, 4-5 sentences) to each of my charts. My thought was to make it appear when a user mouses over the title. Is there a simple way to do that?

    My other thought was to put a small “?” image next to the title or in the corner of the chart, and when a user clicks that, it would popup on the chart. I’m open to other suggestions as well.

    Any thoughts? If so, hopefully you can point me to a detailed example as I’m a js novice.

    Thanks in advance!



    You can place an icon (info or question-mark) to the top-right of the chart & pass description as title attribute of the icon. The description will be shown in a tooltip on hovering the icon. Please take a look at this JSFiddle for an example.

    Also, you can convert it to a JavaScript function so that you can add information for multiple charts. Please refer to this JSFiddle for an example on the same.
