Hi:

How do I disable/remove jquery tools tooltips?

Entities on my screen change dynamically based on user interactions.
I'd like to be able to remove or disable tool tips in certain instances.

Or is there away to enable/disable tooltips?

What is the best way to do this?

Thanks,
JohnB

Assuming your mean the jQueryUI Tooltips:

//add tooltips to all elements with a class of 'tooltip'
$( ".tooltip" ).tooltip();

//disable the tooltip for an element with an id of #element1
$( "#element1" ).tooltip( "option", "disabled", true );

Open in new window

I believe I am using "jquery-tools" library. I will try your suggestion though.

Are the tooltips added to all of the links on your page or only select few? Are the tooltips activated by a class on your links? If so would not removing this class disable the pop up tooltip?

i think you can call  this.getTip().hide();

Hi dejaanbe,
aside from the jquery have a look at the code on the actual "a" tag. It might look something like this:
<a class="tooltip" title="My title tag that pops up in the tooltip" href="some url">

In this instance the tooltip attaches itself to the "a" tag via the class "tooltip". Remove this class and the tooltip is disabled.
Cheers,
N
PS: You may have something other class on the "a" tag. Have a look and see what you can find..
PPS: Maybe a link to your web page would help us?

Hi dejaanbe:

I think your solution is approaching something I can use.

However .getTip() is coming back as undefined.

Can you give an example of how this would/should/work?

I try something like this, where ".divInventoryPrice' has a tooltip associated with it.
So if I call:
$('.divInventoryPrice').getTip()

Open in new window

I get the following error message:
TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'getTip'

Ha:

I just figured it out:

If I add the following to my ToolTip initialization, I can control
the visibility of tooltips:

true --> Show ToolTip
false -->> Don't Show ToolTip

onBeforeShow: function(b, e){
      return false;
},

Both your answers got me thinking and digging a little more.
Thanks for the replies.
