Is there a way to enable map tips for a DEM raster layer? I want to hover over a raster and get the values.

I usually do this in ArcMap and I am trying to learn if it is possible in QGIS.

    To display cell value at the mouse tip, you can use Value Tool plugin. (NB the value is shown in another panel, not at the cursor point.) – Kazuhito Apr 22 '17 at 2:48

You can use Value Tool plugin which displays the cell value as you hover your mouse over it.

Unfortunately the value is shown in another panel, not at the cursor point as you used to see in ArcGIS' Map Tips.
