Hi experts,

I have a basic asp.net page.

I'm using the jquery library and i'm using the jquery tooltip widget.

My page is called ToolTip2.aspx and this is the code:

<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="ToolTip2.aspx.vb" Inherits="jqLibrary.ToolTip2" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
<style type="text/css">

.TestText1 {font-family: Arial; color: #FF0000; font-size: 12px; font-weight: normal;}

</style>
    
    <%-- referening jquery library --%>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Scripts/jquery-ui.css" />

    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/jquery-ui.js"></script>
    
    <%-- tooltip function --%>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        $(function () { $(document).tooltip(); });                 
    </script>
    
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    
<p></p>
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<p>
<a href="#" title="Anchor description">Anchor text</a>
<input type="text" title="Input help" />

    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" ToolTip="I am a asp TextBox"></asp:TextBox>
</p>
<table width="800" border="1">
  <tr> 
    <td>Column1</td>
    <td>Column2</td>
    <td>Column3</td>
    <td>Column4</td>
  </tr>
  <tr> 
    <td><span class="TestText1" title="This is some tooltip text on a table cell">R2C1</span></td>
    <td>R2C2</td>
    <td>R2C3</td>
    <td>R2C4</td>
  </tr>
</table>

    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window


When I run it, it looks like this:

my asp page

If you notice, when you hover over a textbox. The tooltip is white and shows up below the control I hover over.

How do I modify so the background color of the tooltip is yellow instead of white and instead of having the tooltip showing below the control I hover over, I want the tooltip to show up above the control I hover over.
