Display Images within the hover_url


At the moment just text will be displayed when specified a website in "hover_url".

Why there is no support for images?
If you specify for example a .png this will result in an error :-(

This can be easily done via a lightbox or sth. like this which opens on mouseover.

(Use case:
Map with Status of cameras and we like view the live camera image when hover on the kamera icon.)

You can create custom hover templates which embed those resources, like images or video streams. this works for a long time and is much more flexible than let the userdefine an url and make nagvis guess which html codes to use to display this url.

Marking as done now.

We've been looking for a solution to the same issue, displaying camera images within NagVis. We'd love to be able to imbed a small thumbnail type image within maps, not just in a hover_url. But would be happy with either. Keep up the great work guys!
