JQueryUITooltip

Summary

Homepage: http://api.jqueryui.com/tooltip/
Author(s): see http://jqueryui.com/about
Version: 1.10.3

Usage

To load the library into the current wiki page, add this somewhere on the page:

%JQREQUIRE{"ui::tooltip"}%

This will initialize all DOM elements with a jqUITooltip css class and add a jQuery-ui tooltip to it.

<a href="#" class="jqUITooltip" title="This is the tooltip content">hover me</a>

hover me

The plugin will also delegate the feature to all elements in a jqUITooltip container by means of delegation. This means that all elements contained in a jqUITooltip container will be tooltip-enabled. By default any content of a title attribute will serve as the content for the tooltip displayed when hovering over this element.

<div class="jqUITooltip">
   * <a href="#" title="This is the tooltip content">hover me</a>
   * <a href="#" title="This is the tooltip content">hover me</a>
   * <a href="#" title="This is the tooltip content">hover me</a>
   * <a href="#" title="This is the tooltip content">hover me</a>
</div>
