Implementing Tooltip for a Struts select box

Hi - I have several items displayed in a struts select box - for each I would like to implement a tooltip for the user - is there any way to do this ?

1 Solution
If I needed to do this, I would:

1. create a bean that would be used top fill the select list. The bean would have objects for the Label, value and tooltip for each item in the select.
2. Generate the list of options for the select and put them into an ArrayList<SelectListBean>
3. Then in the JSP, I would iterate through the ArrayList, adding a tooltip for each item in the select.

NOTE: the html tag property for what you would call tooltip is "Title" and you can see the usage of the Title property in the code example below.
<select name="parts" size="5" multiple="true">
    <logic:iterate id="sel" type="com.themaskedcrusader.project.beans.admin.SelectListBean" name="selList" scope="request" indexId="count">
        <option value="<bean:write name="sel" property="value"/>" title="<bean:write name="sel" property="toolTip"/>">
            <bean:write name="sel" property="label"/>
