Hello experts,

I am trying to set a tooltip with imagemapster plugin.

They have a very complicated example here: http://www.outsharked.com/imagemapster/default.aspx?demos.html#tooltip.

What i am trying to do is much more simple. the tooltip should basically show a text of the area shape id. So in this example below it should simply show "5.5.1". The tooltip should show inside the area shape when hover.

If someone can just show me a very simply way to do i would be thankful.

<area shape="rect" id="5.5.1" coords="35,47,164,78" alt="" href="" target="_blank">

Hi GaryC123

Thank you.

The jsfiddle does not work for some reason!?

The tooltip/caption should show in the highlighted area shape  and not in a div outside.
The tooltip/caption text should be simply the ID of the area shape.

Hi,
just overwrite this function:
        onShowToolTip: function(data) {
            data.toolTip.text(this.id);
        }

Open in new window


Sample:

Note: I set both tooltips on the area as well as only some IDs.

And an updated version

Hi GaryC123

Thank you so much.
Because this should have been triggered when the user hover a row in a table i managed to convert it as show below. It works perfect!

var areaMapId = "area#"+newText;		
	var areaMapPosition = $(areaMapId).attr('coords').split(',');
		$("#tooltip").css({top:areaMapPosition[1]+"px",left:areaMapPosition[0]+"px"}).html(text).width(areaMapPosition[2]-areaMapPosition[0]+"px").show();
