Useful Tooltips Tutorials and jQuery Plugins

Nur . Posted in How-To, Plugins 1325 Views

The tooltip is a common graphical user interface element. It is used in conjunction with a cursor, usually a mouse pointer. The user hovers the cursor over an item, without clicking it, and a tooltip may appear — a small “hover box” with information about the item being hovered over.

I have compiled few tutorials and jQuery Plugins for Tooltips.

1. TinyTips – Lightweight jQuery Plugin for Tooltips

3. TipTip Custom Tooltip jQuery Plugin with Zero Images

TipTip-Tooltip-jQuery-Plugi

TipTip uses the title attribute just like the native browser tooltip does. However, the title will be copied and then removed from the element when using TipTip so that the browser tooltip will not show up.
TipTip only generates one set of popup elements total, rather then generating one set of popup elements for each element with TipTip applied to it. This helps speed things up and reduces processing time. The elements generated are all div elements and are appended to the end of the body element.
