hello all,

i am having some thoughts about using hint text in my webpage. When there multiple artists that composed an item. Let's say their name is displayed as V/A i want to display a hinttext with all artist named in their when you hover over the artist name (V/A).

I write out the name of the artist like this:


The hintext is also an attribute contained by product. But how can i display it on the screen?

You keep referring to this "hinttext". What are you talking about?

I believe he is talking about either fly-over or pop-up text. Like when you place your mouse over an image. Or he could be talking about having small text under some regular text. Or...he could be talking about something completely different.

You could build a drop down select box with all of the names. Not as elegant as a fly-over box.

I've never seen java script dynamically load a list; you can use the onHover node in js, but I believe this is only for preexisting options.

Good Luck.

Ok sorry guys,

what i meant was a display popup text like when you hover over an image when you hover over the artist text area.

Can i perhaps place an empty image and add the text there.
How can i add a popup text to an image?

I'll keep you posted.
