@siddiq ali for each column in your list where you want the tooltip you will need to format the column (advanced mode) and paste in the following JSON:


  "elmType": "div",
  "style": {
    "font-size": "12px"
  "txtContent": "@currentField",
  "customCardProps": {
    "formatter": {
      "elmType": "div",
      "txtContent": "@currentField",
      "style": {
        "font-size": "12px",
        "color": "green",
        "padding": "5px"
    "openOnEvent": "hover",
    "directionalHint": "bottomCenter",
    "isBeakVisible": true,
    "beakStyle": {
      "backgroundColor": "white"




You can change the second txtContent line to whatever you want for the text in the tooltip.

Thanks for the response Rob , But I need Dynamic Tool Tip where I can show the information what ever I need for each column (Title , NextValue, Comment)
You format the tooltip for each column and set what you want the tooltip to display. If you want anything else I'm not sure I understand your requirement.

@siddiq ali I agree that you need to be more specific about the information you would like to display in the tooltip.  This article does a good job of laying out most of the options.
