What is Floating Visuals?
When hovering the mouse over a visualization element in the Spotfire application, the platform highlights the given element. Spotfire platform highlights the related elements on other visualizations in the same analysis document as well. InfomatiX overrode this highlighting functionality and implemented a popup window mechanism to display a visualization on top of the highlighted element.
Is it possible to limits the data by the highlighted data?
Yes. It is possible. When appearing visual contains only the data the highlight selection includes if the data limitation is set.
Can I set floating visuals on floated visual?
Yes. It is possible. Any number of visualization can be configured as floating visual. But can not create circular reference between the floated visuals.
What other limitations are there?
Because of technical limitations, Summary Tables and Text Areas cannot be used as the base of floated visuals.
