View Full Version : Rich HTML Balloon Tooltip

12-27-2007, 02:32 PM
1) Script Title: Rich HTML Balloon Tooltip

2) Script URL (on DD): http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/balloontooltip.htm

3) Describe problem: I want this script to use on a page which is showed inside an iframe. And when I do, the little balloon sometimes appear with its parts outside the iframe window. So the first few words could not be read.
It's annoying and I love this script so badly, I need help from you.
I hope someone will help me out (the iframe's width and height are always the same, it's not scalable at all, if it helps)

An iframe basically creates a window within the page it's embedded on, and can throw off a script's calculation of the window's dimensions, which are assumed to be the main window itself. There may not be a quick solution to this, but either way, if you have a URL to the problem page, it'd help in seeing if there's anything that can be done.

I have a link to the problem. I also made a screenshot.


If you open the link you can see exactly what I want. I have two iframes which are always the same height and width. It is not resiable and no nothing.

I dunno if there's something in the script I can change which makes me able to tell the script what are the width and heght of the left window.

If I'm okay, I'll do an online storybased RPG with it which will be absolutely free. So I hope it can be done...

Frames and iframes are deprecated, so you will not find too much enthusiastic support for this type of issue. You might want to look here (not official DD material):


for ideas though. As well as the many posts by molendijk (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/search.php?do=finduser&u=22645), who seems very interested in frames and iframes.

Well, OK, (i)frames are depecrated, but you can do many iframe-things with objects, see http://aplus.co.yu/web-dev/insert-html-page-into-another-html-page/.
