Create a Content Rich Tooltip with JSON and jQuery

Posted · Category: License Free, Tooltips

Today we’re going to break the mold of the traditional tooltip. This tutorial will demonstrate how to build tooltips that are powered by jQuery, with information pulled from a JSON array. Here’s a look at the final result that we’ll be looking to make:

The end result

Our page will have two links. When a user hovers over a link, it will trigger the top banner to change its background image and text based on the entry in a JSON array. See the Demo

We’ll be using a pack of background images in later steps. You can grab those here.

Build the Page Structure

New File: I have called my HTML file ‘json-tooltip.htm” for this tutorial

Our example’s HTML is pretty self explanatory. We’re just blocking out a banner to contain the tooltip information, and then placing all of the normal content below.

Pay special attention to what’s going on with link anchors with a class of “tooltip” though. This is the class that will designate which links are tooltips. Also, you’ll notice that the “rel” attribute contains a number. This is the number we’ll use to associate a specific tooltip to an anchor link. This will become clear in a few steps.

Posted · Category: MIT License, Tooltips

Captify jQuery Plugin displays simple, pretty image captions that appear on rollover. Captions can be locked “always-on”, or set to fade in on rollover. Also, captions can slide in from the top or the bottom.

Captify was inspired by ImageCaptions, another jQuery plugin for displaying captions like these. unlike ImageCaptions at the moment, Captify is easy to use, small/simple, and completely ready for use in production environments. Captify has been tested on Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer.

Preview Images with imgPreview jQuery Plugin

Posted · Category: License Free, Tooltips

A New jQuery plugin: imgPreview allows your users to preview an image before clicking on it and, out of necessity, will preload the image so when a user does click through to it there is no waiting time.

The image preview shows up in a tooltip-like box appearing alongside the user’s cursor when hovering over a link. The plugin is entirely unobtrusive; it does not require any hooks to target specific links (no non-semantic classes); it will automatically detect the anchors that are linking to images and will only apply the preview effect to them.

Additionally, it allows for quite a high level of customisation with Callback functions as well. You can also specify a thumbnail prefix for images. So, it won’t take too long time to load larger images.

Fully Featured Image Magnifier with Dojo Zoomer

Posted · Category: License Free, Tooltips

It began as a simple Drag and Drop / Constrained Mover example, and with the help of a couple #dojo community members took shape into a fully featured demo showing the power of the Dojo Toolkit.

Peter Higgins has created Dojo Zoomer. It is divided into 3 panels. By hovering over the image on the left panel, right panel dynamically displays the cropped portion of the image, so that you can focus explicitly on the portion of the main image that interests you. You can see a list of thumbnails at the bottom panel which is enhanced with a paging/switching mechanism with dojo.fx and some onclick events as well.

Easiest Tooltip and Image Preview Using jQuery

Posted · Category: Capture, License Free, Tooltips

Easiest Tooltip and Image Preview is one of those tooltip-like bubble popups that appears when you roll over link or a thumbnail. What this script does is adds an element to the body when you roll over a certain object. That element’s appearance is predefined with css (positioned absolute and styled) so all we need to do is fill the element with content, calculate mouse position and make it move accordingly. When cursor is moved over he object, element moves with it and when cursor roll out, the element is deleted. Easiest Tooltip and Image Preview is powered by jQuery.
