View Full Version : Displaying tooltips across frames

08-31-2004, 06:17 PM

I recently implemented the "Cool DHTML tooltip" into my site, but am now having trouble displaying it across frames. I have 3 frames in columns, with the left/right columns being image links. When I mouseover the images on the left, only part of the tooltip is visible (the rest appears beneath the center frame). Any idea how to make this display on top? Thanks in advance.

That's normal, as DHTML layers by default cannot cross over to another frame. There is a technique to overcome this in DHTML (window.createPopup()), though it's IE only, so we don't have plans to implement it.

Thank you for the quick reply. I'll have to come up with something else.
