Tooltips

Hello all :)

I am trying to pull pictures from a database and put them into a table.  I have created a mock website page of what I'm trying to accomplish.

http://www.hubcitydesigns.com/hubcity/jewelry2.php

On this page, you'll see 3 flowers.  When you rollover the flowers, a tooltip comes up.  It's so pretty :)  Unfortunately, the tooltip remains the same on all 3 pictures and this is not so pretty!

So, does anyone know how to make the tooltip look like the thumbnail?  I can assure you the pictures in the database are different, but the display is not.

Also, I am using this Dynamic Drive tooltip:
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/stickytooltip.htm

Thank you ahead of time :)

Oops...I think it would help if I gave you the php info :)
<?php
include ("dbinfo.php");

//count number of records 
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM products") or die
(mysql_error());
$num_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);
 
if(mysql_num_rows($result) == 0) {
  echo "<font size=\"4\" face=\"Arial\"><center>No results were found.</center>";
$none="1";
}

//number you want to display per page
$page_rows=6;
 

//This tells us the page number of last page
$last=ceil($num_rows/$page_rows);
 
 
//determine results
//This checks to see if there's a page number.  If not, it will set it to page 1.
if(isset($_GET['pagenum'])) {
  $pagenum=$_GET['pagenum'];
}

Try this:
<?php

//count number of records 

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM products") or die

(mysql_error());

$num_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);

  echo "<font size=\"4\" face=\"Arial\"><center>No results were found.</center>";

$none="1";

}



//number you want to display per page

$page_rows=6;

 



//This tells us the page number of last page

$last=ceil($num_rows/$page_rows);

 

 

//determine results

//This checks to see if there's a page number.  If not, it will set it to page 1.

if(isset($_GET['pagenum'])) {

  $pagenum=$_GET['pagenum'];

}

else{

  $pagenum=1;

}



$pagenum=(int)$pagenum;

if ($pagenum>$last)

{

$pagenum=$last;

}

{

$pagenum=1;

Give a different ID for each of the DIVs for each iteration. Concatenate the $a variable to the name... couple of places...

echo "<td width=\"25%\"><center><a href=\"\"><img src='$thumb' WIDTH=138 HEIGHT=117 border=\"1\" data-tooltip=\"sticky1\"></a><br>";

echo "<div id=\"sticky1\" class=\"atip\">";

Currently, you are effectively replacing the content of the DIV on every iteration of the loop.

I see...I tried it out, but it seems the last 2 tooltips are missing the pictures now.  I'm getting excited about being closer to a solution, though :)

I just looked at the original website
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/stickytooltip.htm

The only mistake now u may be making is that your iteration is creating multiple DIVs for "mystickytooltip"... whereas it should be creating just ONE.
Hence, take the following code out of the loop and put it outside.

echo "<div id=\"mystickytooltip\" class=\"stickytooltip\">";

Look at the example from that site again....
<div id="mystickytooltip" class="stickytooltip">
<div style="padding:5px">

<div id="sticky1">
Sticky Tooptip 1 content here...
</div>

<div id="sticky2">
Sticky Tooptip 2 content here...
</div>

<div id="sticky3">
Sticky Tooptip 3 content here...
</div>

</div>

<div class="stickystatus"></div>
</div>

Your output should look something like this... take cue form it
<DIV STYLE=" position:absolute; top:170px; left:380px; width:750px; height:450px; z-index:938;">

Okay, but that takes me back to jmatix's code that leaves an empty page, unless I'm doing it wrong?

http://www.hubcitydesigns.com/hubcity/jewelry2.php

On line 69, does that div need to be elsewhere or is that what the problem may be?
<?php

include ("dbinfo.php");



//count number of records 

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM products") or die

(mysql_error());

$num_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);

  echo "<font size=\"4\" face=\"Arial\"><center>No results were found.</center>";

$none="1";

}



//number you want to display per page

$page_rows=6;

 



//This tells us the page number of last page

$last=ceil($num_rows/$page_rows);

 

 

//determine results

//This checks to see if there's a page number.  If not, it will set it to page 1.

if(isset($_GET['pagenum'])) {

  $pagenum=$_GET['pagenum'];

}

}

Please try to mimic the above output. You may need two loops to get your desired output (through it can be done with just one). Please try with 2 loops first which should be easy.

I am afraid this is just one set of pictures that are coming out of the database.  Some pages have up to 20 pictures that I use pagination to put in order.

I am not confident in my ability to add a second while loop.  Can you give me some advice on how that would need to be added?

Thank you :)

I tried adding a second loop, but it didn't work.  If you really think the $a should work, I'd rather stick with trying to figure that out.  Really, I'm unsure why the code doesn't work.  

It seems when I take the

echo "<div id=\"mystickytooltip\" class=\"stickytooltip\">";
echo "<div style=\"padding:5px\">";

Open in new window


part and keep it into the loop, the images actually show up.  When I put it outside the loop, everything disappears.  I'm unsure where to go from here.

I am not sure if you have already figured this out. The problem is that the thumbnails should be out the <div id="mystickytooltip"> block. Otherwise it will be hidden by default. I tried the code below and it worked. I build the thumbnail HTML inside the loop, but print it after exiting the loop.
$htm = "";

while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result))

{

$regpic=$row["fileName"];

$regpic=htmlspecialchars($regpic);

$thumb=$row["fileNameT1"];

$thumb=htmlspecialchars($thumb);



if ($a<=3)

{

$htm .= "<a href=\"\"><img src='$thumb' WIDTH=138 HEIGHT=117 border=



\"1\" data-tooltip=\"sticky$a\"></a><br>";





echo "<td width=\"25%\"><center><div id=\"sticky$a\" class=\"atip\">";

echo "<img src=\"$regpic\" width=\"300\" height=\"300\" />";

echo "</div>";



echo "</td>";

echo "</center>";

$a++;

}

else

{

echo "</tr><tr>";

$htm .= "<a href=\"\"><img src='$thumb' WIDTH=138 HEIGHT=117 border=

echo "<td width=\"25%\"><center><div id=\"sticky$a\" class=\"atip\">";

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Yes, as long as it is inside that <div> it wouldn't work.  I worked in your code instead and it still isn't working.

Oops-On line 92 of my code, is that supposed to a++?  I changed that, but now it shows 2 to a line instead of 3.  Regardless, it isn't showing the tooltips at all.  Hmmm...Do you know of a simpler code I could use?

I added $c++ as my counter variable since for testing I was not pulling image filenames from database. Ignore that line. Can you post the generated HTML from your browser (view source)?

Beautiful!  It works!  However, just a few more questions about it.  It is now showing the images vertical instead of 3 across.  And when you rollover it, there seems to be boxes on the sides of them.  Looking over my code, I'm unsure exactly where this is coming from.  Any ideas on how to fix it?

I'm getting excited!
Thanks!

Remove the <br> after each thumbnail <a>:

<a href="">
<img src='../images/Bluehills.jpg' WIDTH=138 HEIGHT=117 border="1" data-tooltip="sticky1"></a>
<a href="">
<img src='../images/Sunset.jpg' WIDTH=138 HEIGHT=117 border="1" data-tooltip="sticky2"></a>
<a href=""><img src='../images/Waterlilies.jpg' WIDTH=138 HEIGHT=117 border="1" data-tooltip="sticky3"></a>  

The border is coming from the table. Make it border="0" as:

<table width="100%"style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt" face="Arial" align=center border="0" cellspacing="10">
         
May be you want to reduce the width of the table too.

To bring the tooltips closer to the thumbnails adjust the top and left positions of the enclosing <DIV>. You can even put -ve values as:

<DIV STYLE="position:absolute; top:0px; left:-50px; width:750px; height:450px; z-index:938;">
