Open link on click

I apologize if I’m missing something easy here, but I’d like to make a plot (currently in ipython notebook) which opens a specific url when you click on a point. I’m already using the HoverTool to show more information on the particular data point; I just want a mouse click to do a little more.

It doesn’t seem like HoverTool (given the name) is quite the right place to do this, but I’d really like something like:

hover = [t for t in curplot().tools if isinstance(t, HoverTool)][0]

hover.tooltips =

hover.on_click_url =

Even more ideally:

hover.on_click_clipboard =

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Hi Gary,

You are correct that the hover tool is not the best place for this. For one thing the mouse is never actually over the tooltip, so a link there could never be clicked. I don’t think there is any capability in Bokeh currently that would facilitate this. Can you add a GitHub issue for requesting this feature? Then we can discuss it more and figure out where on the short term roadmap it might fit.

Thanks,

Bryan,

Thanks - I opened up the bug. But I’m not sure why hover tool wouldn’t basically do it - the mouse is over the object that has the link. I played with it a little and got something working ( https://github.com/yerfdogyrag/bokeh/tree/hover_link_sample ). Wow - Javascript isn’t what it was 10 years ago :-).

It’s pretty much changing the mousemove to click and pulling a url.

Thanks Gary for open the issue, btw… you are writing Coffeescript instead of Javascript, maybe this is why you see it so different :wink:

Hi Gary,

I had misunderstood, I thought you wanted a clickable link in the hover tooltip (which the mouse is never over, only adjacent to). If you'd like to work this up as a PR we can definitely see about getting it included. It might make sense to have it as a separate "click tool" that can be configured with an action (like opening a link) on the click. Let us know what you think, and thanks for tying out Bokeh!

Bryan
