ToolTip in ASP.Net For Dropdown Control

Hi All,

I need to create a ToolTip for a DropDown Control in ASP.Net.  I know there's a way to do this.  The DropDown control in ASP.Net does not have a ToolTip property, so I need to create one.  I don't want to insert JavaScript.  I'd prefer to do this in VB.Net code for the ASP.Net page.

I'm aware that the ToolTip control is a part of System.ComponentModel.Component on the VB Windows side, but I can't figure out how to add the ToolTip property to the DropDown control for an ASP.Net DropDown control.

Does anyone know how to do this for an ASP.Net DropDown control?

Thanks

Use this in your code-behind page:

ddl1.Attributes.Add("onmouseout","javascript:tooltip(0);");
ddl1.Attributes.Add("onmouseover","javascript:tooltip(1);");

where ddl1 is the name of the DropDownlist ASP.NET control.

In your .aspx page add the following:

<script language="Javascript">
  function tooltip(x)
   {
       if(x==1)
       {
       document.all.tooltip.innerText = 'This is an example';
       document.all.tooltip.style.visibility ="visible";
       }
       else
       {
         //A tootip must be unshown<BR>          
         document.all.tooltip.style.visibility ="hidden";
       }
   }
</script>


Add this within your 'form' tag ;

<div class="tip" id="tooltip"></div>

Also you can apply the style sheet of your choice for the tooltip text.

Thanks, vinayakrishna.

I'm home from work today, and I will try this tomorrow.

I want to pass in the string for the ToolTip.  The user will make a selection from the DropDown control.  I am parsing text from the SelectedItem.Text of their selection and using that to formulate the ToolTip.  How would I pass that into your <SCRIPT> function?

If this works I will up the points.  Thanks again for your help.
