The goal is when you hover over anything with the class "Edit" it will display certain text in the "ContentFooter" div.

So I have an image like this:

<img class="Edit" toast="This is the message to display" src="../image.png">

When I hover over it, it will display the alert "test1" (when it's uncommented).  However, the alert of $(this).attr('toast').text() does not work.  I have tried .val() as well.  I am new to jquery.
$(".Edit").hover(
    function () {
        //alert("test1");
        alert($(this).attr('toast').text());
        //$(".ContentFooter").html($(this).attr('toast').text());
    },
    function () {
        $(".ContentFooter").html("");
    });

The text() call is wrong. This method is for getting the text content of elements, not the value of attributes. You already get that by attr(). So, correctly, it has to be:
$(".Edit").hover(
    function () {
        $(".ContentFooter").html($(this).attr('toast'));
    },
    function () {
        $(".ContentFooter").html("");
    });
