Download script

You can download the entire script from this Zip file

Files included in the package:

  • form-field-tooltip.html = Main demo HTML file

  • js/rounded-corners.js = JS file created to add rounded corners dynamically to the tooltip
  • css/form-field-tooltip.css = Main CSS file for the tooltip

Include files

First, you need to include the js files and css files as in the demo(form-field-tooltip.html)

Define tooltip text

Tooltip text is something you add manually to your <INPUT> or <TEXTAREA> tags by creating a tooltipText attribute. Example:

<input type="text" id="firstname" name="firstname" tooltipText="Type in your firstname in this box">

Initialize and configure the script

At the bottom of your page, add code similar to this:

<script type="text/javascript">
var tooltipObj = new DHTMLgoodies_formTooltip();

Which methods you want to call depends on what you need. Look at the complete documentation for more help.

Is there a simple way to make individual tooltips into hyperlinks, rather than making the text within a hyperlink?

Hey its not working on IE7.

When I use this on a sliding form when I move from one form to another the tool tip does not close. Even on the example, when the next field (drop down menu) does not have tool tip, the previous tip stays open. How can I force the tool tip to close after leaving a field if no tool tip is in the next text field.
