Simple tooltip using javascript and css?

The following code will generate the simple tooltip using Javascript and css. You can find the demo also.

 

The Javascript code :

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
/* This tooltip library was created by Anil Kumar  */
function showtip(e,message)

{var x=0;

var y=0;

var m;

var h;

if(!e)
var e=window.event;

if(e.pageX||e.pageY) { x=e.pageX;  y=e.pageY;  }

else if(e.clientX||e.clientY)

{ x=e.clientX+document.body.scrollLeft+document.documentElement.scrollLeft;y=e.clientY+document.body.scrollTop+document.documentElement.scrollTop;}
m=document.getElementById('mktipmsg');

if((y>10)&&(y<450))

{  m.style.top=y-4+"px";  }

else{  m.style.top=y+4+"px";  }

var messageHeigth=(message.length/20)*10+25;

if((e.clientY+messageHeigth)>510)

{  m.style.top=y-messageHeigth+"px"; }
if(x<850) { m.style.left=x+20+"px";  }

else{  m.style.left=x-170+"px";  }

m.innerHTML=message;m.style.display="block";m.style.zIndex=203;

}

function hidetip(){

var m;

m=document.getElementById('mktipmsg');m.style.display="none";

}

</script>

The CSS Code:

<style type="text/css">

#mktipmsg {padding: 5px; background-color: #FFF8DC;  border: 1px solid #DEB887; width:180px;font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #6b6b6b; display:none; position:absolute;left:0px;top:0px; }
</style>
<a href="javascript:void(0)" onmouseover="showtip(event, 'Simple tooltip text');"
onmouseout="hidetip();">Hover your mouse here to see simple tooltip text.</a>

<div id="mktipmsg" ></div>

It will be useful …

    Please help me in correcting this Script

  2. Try to write the javascript code line by line then we know that condition from where to where, there is problem of missing closing brackets in your script.

  5. Write the below code

    messageHeigth=-10;
    if((y>10)&&(y<510))
    {
    m.style.top=y-messageHeigth+"px";
    }
    then we can get the tooltip text, i am also using firefox 3.5 only, it is working fine now.

    see the live demo @ http://labs.anil2u.info/tooltip.php

    Thanks

  8. Hi Shary,

    I am also not tried with that requirement.

  9. shary says:

    Hi, i Just got the solution,

    The Solution is, Go to HTML part and change this line

    onmouseover=”showtip(event,’message’);”

    with below line

    onmousemove=”showtip(event,’message’);”

    You will get sliding Tooltip with the movement of your Mouse.

    Thanks

  10. Hi shary,

    thanks you very much for your solution,
