cant select IMAGE MAP AREA for jquery?!

Hi there,

I try here since long time now to get my jquery tooltip working with a old school image map but i cant select somehow the correct area.

I tried several selectors like name,class, etc. but it just never works.

I just would like to get the jquery tooltip working with the correct area of a image map. can somebody tell me how to create the correct selector for this?

I posted a demo code with an example on how i tried. (which does not work)

If i use a[rel=tooltip] instead of area[rel=tooltip] it works perfect with all A HREF but i need in this case that it works with the AREA.

thank you in advance,
Oliver

Try this.

The problem u got is quite simple. You wanted to create and append a tooltip element into an area element - that does not allow a DIV there. Simply moving div to document body and displaying / hiding on mouseover/out solves your problem. Cheers!
