Hello, I need a Java script Expert to help me out. Basically I am using Java Script and html to create a popup tooltip/baloon.

I am using this code posted by google :
http://code.google.com/p/bubbletip/source/browse/trunk/BubbleTip/js/jQuery.bubbletip-1.0.6.js?r=14

Everything works well, however I need to be able to specifiy the width of the bubbletip, and I can't figure it out how to do that by looking at the Java Script code displayed at the URL posted.

In the code their is an options parameter that can be used to customize the tooltip. Yet nothing I can see about specifiying the width. Can someone take a look at this Java Script and figure out how to specify the width of the tooltip? Also I don't know how to specify a hard return for the text to be  displayed. However the width problem is my most urgent priority.

Here is an example of  how they are able to specifiy the tooltip options, for an actual code snippet. Yet, as I mentioned before, there is nothin I can see about sizing the tooltip.
$('#a1_down').bubbletip($('#tip1_down')
{
 
     deltaDirection: 'down',
 
     deltaPosition: 50,
 
     offsetTop: 20 })

Hello,

First, try to use container element around your content.
For example, you can set the width of #tip1_down.

You can do this with CSS or with inline styles:

<div id="tip1_down" style="display: block; width: 500px;">Content</content>

Open in new window

or
<!-- CSS -->
<style type="text/css">
  .bubble { display: block; width: 500px; }
</style>

<!-- HTML -->
<div id="tip1_down" class="bubble">Content</content>

Open in new window
