Data Tips in parallelplot

I have some additional data point information which I would like to display in the data tips of a parallel coordinate plot (function "parallelplot"). Unfortunately the "data tip properties" of the parallelplot handle are not readily accessible. Hence my question:
Is there a way to modify the data tips? Or maybe there is some workaround using a mouseover function or something similar?

The only way to add content to the datatip in parallelplot is to do so interactively by right-clicking the datatip in parallelplot and selecting "Modify Data Tips". There, you can select additional table variables to appear in the datatip.
tsunamis = readtable('tsunamis.xlsx');
coordvars = {'Year','Validity','Cause','Country'};
p = parallelplot(tsunamis,'CoordinateVariables',coordvars,'GroupVariable','Validity');

I use the coordvars input argument to select the desired variables from the data input tabel
h = parallelplot(data(:,1:8),'GroupVariable','Origin','CoordinateVariables',{'Weight','Accelaration'})
% additional datatip information from data-table is included
Is it possible to fix the datatips by clicking? I've used a buttonDownFunction so far. Does not work...
Additionally the hovered value is added to the datatip in the first line. Is there a way to disable it?
Thank you
