How to set up a tooltip with javascript When you point the mouse in the text above for a while, then you will see a display box containing descriptions that describe the contents of the text. Box that appears is called the tooltips. Then how do I create a tooltip as above? For that follow this tutorial to complete.

 To create a tooltip above we need the javascript code. For script code you can see in the box below.

<script type="text/javascript">
* Cool DHTML tooltip script II- © Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (

var offsetfromcursorX=12 //Customize x offset of tooltip
var offsetfromcursorY=10 //Customize y offset of tooltip
var offsetdivfrompointerX=10 //Customize x offset of tooltip DIV relative to pointer image
var offsetdivfrompointerY=14 //Customize y offset of tooltip DIV relative to pointer image
document.write('<div id="dhtmltooltip"></div>') //write out tooltip DIV
document.write('<img id="dhtmlpointer" src="arrow2.gif">') //write out pointer image

var ie=document.all
var ns6=document.getElementById && !document.all
var enabletip=false
if (ie||ns6)
var tipobj=document.all? document.all["dhtmltooltip"] : document.getElementById? document.getElementById("dhtmltooltip") : ""
var pointerobj=document.all? document.all["dhtmlpointer"] : document.getElementById? document.getElementById("dhtmlpointer") : ""
function ietruebody(){
return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode!="BackCompat")? document.documentElement : document.body
function ddrivetip(thetext, thewidth, thecolor){
if (ns6||ie){
if (typeof thewidth!="undefined")"px"
if (typeof thecolor!="undefined" && thecolor!="")
return false
function positiontip(e){
if (enabletip){
var nondefaultpos=false
var curX=(ns6)?e.pageX : event.clientX+ietruebody().scrollLeft;
var curY=(ns6)?e.pageY : event.clientY+ietruebody().scrollTop;
//Find out how close the mouse is to the corner of the window
var winwidth=ie&&!window.opera? ietruebody().clientWidth : window.innerWidth-20
var winheight=ie&&!window.opera? ietruebody().clientHeight : window.innerHeight-20

var rightedge=ie&&!window.opera? winwidth-event.clientX-offsetfromcursorX : winwidth-e.clientX-offsetfromcursorX
var bottomedge=ie&&!window.opera? winheight-event.clientY-offsetfromcursorY : winheight-e.clientY-offsetfromcursorY

var leftedge=(offsetfromcursorX<0)? offsetfromcursorX*(-1) : -1000

//if the horizontal distance isn't enough to accomodate the width of the context menu
if (rightedge<tipobj.offsetWidth){
//move the horizontal position of the menu to the left by it's width"px"
else if (curX<leftedge)"5px"
//position the horizontal position of the menu where the mouse is positioned"px""px"
//same concept with the vertical position
if (bottomedge<tipobj.offsetHeight){"px"
if (!nondefaultpos)"visible"

function hideddrivetip(){
if (ns6||ie){

To adjust how the tooltip it later on, so here need a style code. Required code like the following.

<style type="text/css">
position: absolute;
left: -300px;
width: 150px;
border: 1px solid black;
padding: 2px;
background-color: #E1EEFD  ; font-family:"Verdana",Arial;font-size:12px;
visibility: hidden;
z-index: 100;
/*Remove below line to remove shadow. Below line should always appear last within this CSS*/
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(color=gray,direction=135);
left: -300px;
z-index: 101;
visibility: hidden;

Code above the script and style before you put it hosted. If you use blogger, then you can use javascript like the suggestion to put on a post in blogger javascript hosting solutions. for code style can be combined with a blog style code above </ head>.

Once the code is javascript and style has been placed correctly, then the next we put tooltip code in place that we want.
