Hi all,

The code below shows three thumbnails with link and alt text . The
info is coming  from the xml file and I'm using $.ajax to place it in
the page.

Now I want to add a tooltip that is using Mootools.

I have to add title="The tooltip::I want to read" class="tipz" to the
div (or to the image, changing the function) in order to use the
tooltip.

But when generating the code dynamically using $.ajax, the tooltip
code will work always for Safari (though it only shows half the
tooltip), but just sometimes for IE and Firefox.
When it does not work, the text shows like a normal alt tag text.
Using IE or Firefox just keep reloading the page and put your mouse
over the thumbnails to test it,  you'll see what I mean.

I'm adding an example at the bottom of the page (the div called
example) so you can see how nicely it works in a static div.

The code is below, but you can see it in action:

Can it be done? Can I add the tooltip to the dynamically generated
code? Seems that the tooltip code go wrong when acts before the div is
created .. is that the problem? how can I solve it?

Thanks a ton!

The latest MooTools framework introduced a compatibility mode, so you could use mootools with another framework (in your case, jquery)

http://mootools.net/blog/2009/06/19/mootools-123-released/

However, it's not recommended...  Isn't there a jQuery toltip plugin you could use?  There are probably hundreds of them
