Note to Touch Device Users
Tooltips are not enabled for touch devices on this page. The code supports touch, but not all tooltip implementations makes sense in that context.
More tooltip features are described and demonstrated  in the list below.
- The tooltip can be activated onmouseover or onclick.
- Tooltip content can be held in a variable, obtained via Ajax, or it can come from HTML elements in the page.
- Tooltip content can include images, images with text, and a caption as well as other rich HTML.
- The tooltip can contain clickable links using a hoverable option.
- The tooltip can be "sticky" or hidden after a specified duration.
Even more features are demonstrated in the list of online examples on the upper right. The download file also provides examples.
- Touchscreen users will not see the tooltips on this page. Even though the tooltip code provides support for touch devices when appropriate, links for navigation that display a tooltip on mouseover don't make sense on a touch device. See the Tooltip Demos listed on the upper right, Tooltips and Touch Devices, and the documentation for demonstration and more information about tooltip support for touch devices. ^
