R is a strong and popular language, enabling developers to create great analytics on data, as well as visualization.
Developers can already create R custom visuals that plugs into Power BI reports, to enable report authors to use those custom visuals without known R. This is a powerful capability to extend the visualizations of Power BI.
We are proud to announce that R custom visuals can now also be interactive, by generating HTML as the visual (instead of the static image that was supported until now), R custom visuals are capable of supporting tooltips and selections.
Here is an example of a time series forecast chart with tooltips, selection and zoom:
We already have interactive R custom visuals in the store. Try them out:
We are working to add more of them soon, and waiting for you, the developers community, to add your own!
