Hi all,
I want to add tool tips for my select lists, the "title" doesn't work for this, I tried to put the select list inside a table and used
<td title="tooltip for select"> but the tool tip does not display when the user keeps his mouse over the select list. It displays the tooltip when i keep the mouse outside the select box in that table.
Can anyone please let me know how to add a tooltip for a select list?
Thanks,
Priyha

What browser? Seems to work fine in Mozilla-based browsers.

priyha,
In ie it will work only outside the select box.( for td title and select box title also not working) But in netscape 7 if u add the title attribute for the select box it will work.

if you want it to work while over the select, you will have to use in the select tag and not in the td tag.
<select title="BLAH BLAH BLAH">
