Walter Zorn Tooltips extension.***Updated 10-9-2011 ***

Post by Strodlee » Mon Jan 04, 2010 9:56 pm

UPDATE - Version 2 September 10, 2011

Walter Zorn Tooltip Extension . Version 2.0.0.0

Main changes made since the last version (1.01)
* Body and heading text input is now through the Rich Text input box
(much easier, more flexible text input and formatting).

* Provision to insert HTML objects into the tooltips - such as hyperlinks, tables,
marquees, inline frames etc; - by copying and pasting the object code.

* Disabled native browser tooltip suppression .
It was sometimes causing problems in Firefox. ( under some circumstances all native browser tooltips on
the page were suppressed after the WZ tooltip was triggered).
------------------------------------------

This extension uses Walter Zorn's JavaScript, DHTML Tooltips library, which is free and known to work in all browsers ( except really old ones which nobody uses any more).

http://www.walterzorn.de/en/tooltip/tooltip_e.htm

These cross browser JavaScript tootlips have many options and settings , most of which have been included in this extension.

Works and validates in Document types: HTML 4.01 Transitional and XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

Use and features:
Free to use - Walter Zorn's JavaScript, DHTML Tooltips library is published under the Lesser General Public License (LGPL).

Ideal for using as tool tips or as pop up information boxes with a nice fade in / fade out effect. Great for showing extra information when hovering over links, images, text or any other object. - Information inside the tooltip will be seen by search engines.

The appearance and behavior of the Tooltips can be individually configured and styled to blend in with your web pages.

Fade in / fade out , automatic size adaptation to content, adjustable opacity, positioning options, shadow options, option to include image, background image and many more - too many to list here - have a look on the Walter Zorn web site or just download and install the extension - it's very easy to use.

I have included some extra formatting and layout options in the content container div so that you can easily add some things like a heading, image float (text will flow beside and under the image), adjustable image margins and some others.


I hope you find it useful for your web sites.
Feedback welcome.

Hi,Clay.
I,m not familiar with the Walter Zorn Drag and Drop library (I have only looked at it briefly ), and I'm not really sure what you mean about using the tooltips to to achieve what you are trying to do.

Do you mean: can you use the WZ tooltips instead of the Drag and Drop library to have some content hide and show by clicking on and off just one button?

That is really sad. I think it is an excellent code and you have made a great extension out it.

Indeed RIP WZ.

Thanks Eddy,
That's really great. Ideal in fact.

There is also a clone of the Walter Zorn tooltips page here...... http://www.frontiernet.net/~bambam0099/ ... ltip_e.htm
but unfortunately some of the tooltips have images which don't show because they are linked back to the original site.

Links inside Walter Zorn Tooltips

Post by Strodlee » Sat May 08, 2010 10:55 pm

Just create a link on your page in the normal way , then right click on it and choose : HTML .....
In the Object HTML window under Generated HTML: , copy the line of code and paste it in to your text (where you want the link to appear) in the body text entry in the WZ tooltips properties.

To ensure that the styles work ( hover, visited link, etc; ) you will need to leave the original link on you page somewhere ( you can hide it if need be) - and have at least one link for each different link style on your page so that the styles are preserved.

Ok I have managed to track down a url that will allow anyone that wants the tooltip to be downloaded from the walter zorn site... this url is a backup url stored on another site named http://web.archive.org anyways here is the url below you can still see the tooltip in working order...
