Prototip Most Features Tooltips for Prototype

Posted · Category: CC License, Tooltips

Prototip allows you to easily create both simple and complex tooltips using the Prototype javascript framework. If you also use Scriptaculous you can even add some nice effects to them as well. You can easily create fixed or offset tooltips with blinding or fade in/out effect. You can also define Hooking for the tooltips which allows you to place your tooltips anywhere in relation to your target elements. The concept is simple, you define two corners that you want to ‘hook’ to eachother. One on the target element, the other one on the tooltip.

    This is a great library but note that there is a fee associated with it for both personal and commercial use.
