1) Script Title:
DHTML tooltip script
2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/dhtmltooltip.htm

3) Describe problem:
I am currently using this script to successfully show an image in the tool tip when mouseing over a thumbnail.

Now I want to add the script and feature to a different page to show an image in the tool tip when mousing over a text link.

The issue is that I'm getting syntax errors because I'm not familiar enough with coding to do it right.

The DHTML script included on the page is:

<style type="text/css">

#dhtmltooltip{
position: absolute;
width: 150px;
border: 1px solid #BBC3D3;
padding: 2px;
background-color: lightred;
FONT-SIZE: 9pt;
font-family: verdana;
visibility: hidden;
z-index: 100;
/*Remove below line to remove shadow. Below line should always appear last within this CSS*/
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(color=gray,directio n=135);
}

</style>

<div id="dhtmltooltip"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">

var offsetxpoint=50 //Customize x offset of tooltip
var offsetypoint=-180 //Customize y offset of tooltip
var ie=document.all
var ns6=document.getElementById && !document.all
var enabletip=false
if (ie||ns6)
var tipobj=document.all? document.all["dhtmltooltip"] : document.getElementById? document.getElementById("dhtmltooltip") : ""

function ietruebody(){
return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode!="BackCompat")? document.documentElement : document.body
}

function ddrivetip(thetext, thecolor, thewidth){
if (ns6||ie){
if (typeof thewidth!="undefined") tipobj.style.width=thewidth+"px"
if (typeof thecolor!="undefined" && thecolor!="") tipobj.style.backgroundColor=thecolor
tipobj.innerHTML=thetext
enabletip=true
return false
}
}

function positiontip(e){
if (enabletip){
var curX=(ns6)?e.pageX : event.x+ietruebody().scrollLeft;
var curY=(ns6)?e.pageY : event.y+ietruebody().scrollTop;
//Find out how close the mouse is to the corner of the window
var rightedge=ie&&!window.opera? ietruebody().clientWidth-event.clientX-offsetxpoint : window.innerWidth-e.clientX-offsetxpoint-20
var bottomedge=ie&&!window.opera? ietruebody().clientHeight-event.clientY-offsetypoint : window.innerHeight-e.clientY-offsetypoint-20

var leftedge=(offsetxpoint<0)? offsetxpoint*(-1) : -1000

//if the horizontal distance isn't enough to accomodate the width of the context menu
if (rightedge<tipobj.offsetWidth)
//move the horizontal position of the menu to the left by it's width
tipobj.style.left=ie? ietruebody().scrollLeft+event.clientX-tipobj.offsetWidth+"px " : window.pageXOffset+e.clientX-tipobj.offsetWidth+"px"
else if (curX<leftedge)
tipobj.style.left="5px"
else
//position the horizontal position of the menu where the mouse is positioned
tipobj.style.left=curX+offsetxpoint+"px"

//same concept with the vertical position
if (bottomedge<tipobj.offsetHeight)
tipobj.style.top=ie? ietruebody().scrollTop+event.clientY-tipobj.offsetHeight-offsetypoint+"px" : window.pageYOffset+e.clientY-tipobj.offsetHeight-offsetypoint+"px"
else
tipobj.style.top=curY+offsetypoint+"px"
tipobj.style.visibility="visible"
}
}

function hideddrivetip(){
if (ns6||ie){
enabletip=false
tipobj.style.visibility="hidden"
tipobj.style.left="-1000px"
tipobj.style.backgroundColor=''
tipobj.style.width=''
}
}

document.onmousemove=positiontip

</script>

and I'm trying to add to the following line with the mouseover additions:


response.write "<img src='../UserMods/misc_Dot2.gif' width='11' height='7' align='absmiddle'><a class='sitemap' href= """ & urlNonSSL & "prodView.asp?idProduct=" &rsTemp("idProduct") & """>" & rsTemp("description") & "</a>

In the same manner that it is coded (and working) on this line:


<a href="prodView.asp?idproduct=<%=IDProduct%>"><img src="<%=pImagesDir & smallimageURL%>" border="0" onMouseover="ddrivetip('<center><%=description%></center><img src=<%=pImagesDir & imageURL%> border=0 width=240>','#F5F5F5', 240)"; onMouseout="hideddrivetip()"></a>

any help is greatly appreciated.
