I need to have a fixed text tooltip on mouse-over, over a given field of a Form Unit. It should be a common requirement, but I can't see a useful property of the field.

Any suggestion about what to do?

Tks a lot!

Hi Guillermo,

I'm sorry but I'm not able to see that property yet.

Can you provide me with more specific information? Is "Alternative text" in the field properties? Or I must access Layout view, then click on the field? And in this case in which tab inside the Property view? Should I use a specific Style Project, or WRDefault is worth as well?

I use WR 7.2.0.

Thanks again

You can achieve this in two ways: first you can set an html "title" attribute from template or from javascript:

document.getElementById('fieldId').title = 'Tooltip title';

or jquery:

$('#fieldID).attr('title', 'Tooltip title');

The second solution consist in integrating a tooltip framework (eg.

Also, if you use a Bootstrap based style project, you can use tooltip capabilities embeded. In this case, you can simply call it with jquery

$('#fieldID').tooltip(options....)  (see more on )


Good luck
