BoxOver DHTML/Javascript Lightweight Tooltips

Posted · Category: GPL License, Tooltips

boxover-tooltips.pngBoxOver uses javascript / DHTML to show tooltips on a website. Implementation of the tooltips, however, requires no knowledge of DHTML or javascript. There are many tweaks which can be set to customise it to your needs by setting through a tag’s “title” attribute. Some of them are very useful.

  • Specifies the header and body text of the tooltip
  • Specifies CSS class for styles to be used on tooltip header and body.
  • Make tooltip stick to side of the window if user moves close to the side of the screen.
  • Specifies whether to halt the tooltip when the user double clicks on the HTML element with the tooltip.
  • Specifies whether to hide all SELECT boxes on page when popup is activated.
  • Specifies whether to fade tooltip into visibility and how fast to fade in tooltip.
  • Specifies delay in milliseconds before tooltip displays.

Requirements: Internet Explorer 5+, Mozilla 1.4+, FireFox 0.9.3+, Opera 7+
