jQuery Tooltip Update

There were quite a few requests to fix a certain issue with the Tooltip plugin. Whenever the tooltip was displayed at the bottom or right of the screen, it moved outside the viewport and caused scrollbars to appear. This is now fixed: The tooltip checks it’s position and moves itself more to the top or left or both when necessary.

The demo page contains some more examples to show this change.

And I added some more documentation on the tooltip plugin page.

Have fun!

    Hi Jörn, thanks for the tooltip, but there are still problems with the positioning (see my comment on the original page). Also, I see that the demo page doesn’t seem to work quite right (the bottom right links display the tooltip off the page). Looking forward to seeing these problems ironed out!

  2. Hi Jeff,

    unfortuanetely I can’t resolve that positioning problem. I can’t calculate the dimensions of the tooltip before showing it, and showing it first causes the flicker. Until I find a solution, you have to avoid the delay or any tooltips at the right/bottom border…

    I’ll let you know when I find a solution.
