Datetime Formatting in HoverTool

I’ve got a timeseries for which I’d like to use the HoverTool to display information about.

I’ve used the trick whereby I plot a scatter plot with alpha=0 on top of my timeseries which works great. The problem is that rather than showing a formatted date the hover tool displays numbers like 1.459e12 which is pretty uninformative.

Is there any way to specify the formatting of the values in the hover tool.?

Also, I’m plotting two series like below and have two “invisible” scatter plots for the hover tool.

The hover tool only seems to be picking up one set of values. Is there any way to make it show both values?

i.e. have the tool display

series1: 59.4

series2: 82.9

date: 01-Jan-2015


plt.line(

series1.index, series1.values,

color='blue',

legend='series1',

tools=tools,

)

plt.line(

series2.index, series2.values,

color='red',

legend='series2',

tools=tools,

)

plt.scatter(series1.index, series1.values, size=4, color='black', alpha=0)

plt.scatter(series2.index, series2.values, size=4, color='black', alpha=0)

formats = {

'months': ["%b-%y"],

'days': ["%d-%b"],

}

plt.xaxis()[0].formatter = DatetimeTickFormatter(formats=formats)

hover = plt.curplot().select(dict(type=HoverTool))

hover.tooltips = OrderedDict([("value", "$y"),("date", "$x")])

Thanks,

Dave

Hi, this is a needed improvement to the hover tool, an issue was just opened a few days ago:

  https://github.com/ContinuumIO/bokeh/issues/1239

Also, I am in the process of improving selections/inspections in a new PR

  https://github.com/ContinuumIO/bokeh/pull/1244

Some of this will address and clarify the use of hover like tools with multiple and different glyphs. I would expect to see both these in the 0.7 release.

I have a related question. Has anyone tried to use hover tool with date columns in the data source. I’m trying to figure out the best way to format the date?

That is the feature request issue I linked:

Although it is not a grey solution, a current workaround until that feature is implemented, is to add a new column to the data source with the dates pre formatted and display that in the hover tool.

No worries, this was a fairly big oversight on the hover tool, hope to have it fixed soon!

Hi

Any update on this? I am desperately trying to format a timestamp nicely in the hover - it currently looks like a unix timestamp.

I’m not sure, b ut the
work around is just to make another column in your data source with your date
formatted as you want it
to display and then reference that in your tooltips.

So this feature (to format unix timestamp as datetime in the hovertool) is requested since 2+ years, and not yet implemented in the latest bokeh release?

The workaround with adding a separate column to the ColumnDataSource where this info is stored as formatted text string is not appealing to me.

So, why not using the custom tooltip option? For example, this works for my purpose:

hover = HoverTool(
tooltips="""


time_start:


time_end:




“”"
)

``

Still, I would prefer to have a formatting option in the native tooltip feature.

Do we have a solution for this yet? My date looks like a unix timestamp. What should I do? The link above to the example is broken.
I even tried: hover.formatters = { “start”: “datetime”} but no luck :frowning:

So this feature (to format unix timestamp as datetime in the hovertool) is requested since 2+ years, and not yet implemented in the latest bokeh release?

The workaround with adding a separate column to the ColumnDataSource where this info is stored as formatted text string is not appealing to me.

So, why not using the custom tooltip option? For example, this works for my purpose:

hover = HoverTool(
tooltips="""


time_start:


time_end:




“”"
)

``

Still, I would prefer to have a formatting option in the native tooltip feature.

Hi

Any update on this? I am desperately trying to format a timestamp nicely in the hover - it currently looks like a unix timestamp.

You can see the sprint example to know how to use it: https://github.com/bokeh/bokeh/blob/master/examples/glyphs/sprint.py

No worries, this was a fairly big oversight on the hover tool, hope to have it fixed soon!

I have a related question. Has anyone tried to use hover tool with date columns in the data source. I’m trying to figure out the best way to format the date?

Hi,

This was implemented a long time ago:

  https://bokeh.pydata.org/en/latest/docs/user_guide/tools.html#formatting-tooltip-fields

If setting .formatters is not working for you then more code would be needed to see what the usage error might be.
