I wish to have onclick tooltip hint n i found script from this site...but then the only problem is that i wish to get the hint appear once onclick instead of onmouseover therefore I change the <a href=# onmouseover=> into <a href=# onclick=>

but then i dont have any idea on how to hide the hint but also based on onclick event

below is the code


<script type="text/javascript">

var horizontal_offset="9px" //horizontal offset of hint box from anchor link

/////No further editting needed

var vertical_offset="0" //horizontal offset of hint box from anchor link. No need to change.
var ie=document.all
var ns6=document.getElementById&&!document.all

function getposOffset(what, offsettype){
var totaloffset=(offsettype=="left")? what.offsetLeft : what.offsetTop;
var parentEl=what.offsetParent;
while (parentEl!=null){
totaloffset=(offsettype=="left")? totaloffset+parentEl.offsetLeft : totaloffset+parentEl.offsetTop;
parentEl=parentEl.offsetParent;
}
return totaloffset;
}

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

function clearbrowseredge(obj, whichedge){
var edgeoffset=(whichedge=="rightedge")? parseInt(horizontal_offset)*-1 : parseInt(vertical_offset)*-1
if (whichedge=="rightedge"){
var windowedge=ie && !window.opera? iecompattest().scrollLeft+iecompattest().clientWidth-30 : window.pageXOffset+window.innerWidth-40
dropmenuobj.contentmeasure=dropmenuobj.offsetWidth
if (windowedge-dropmenuobj.x < dropmenuobj.contentmeasure)
edgeoffset=dropmenuobj.contentmeasure+obj.offsetWidth+parseInt(horizontal_offset)
}
else{
var windowedge=ie && !window.opera? iecompattest().scrollTop+iecompattest().clientHeight-15 : window.pageYOffset+window.innerHeight-18
dropmenuobj.contentmeasure=dropmenuobj.offsetHeight
if (windowedge-dropmenuobj.y < dropmenuobj.contentmeasure)
edgeoffset=dropmenuobj.contentmeasure-obj.offsetHeight
}
return edgeoffset
}

function showhint(menucontents, obj, e, tipwidth){
if ((ie||ns6) && document.getElementById("hintbox")){
dropmenuobj=document.getElementById("hintbox")
dropmenuobj.innerHTML=menucontents
dropmenuobj.style.left=dropmenuobj.style.top=-500
if (tipwidth!=""){
dropmenuobj.widthobj=dropmenuobj.style
dropmenuobj.widthobj.width=tipwidth
}
dropmenuobj.x=getposOffset(obj, "left")
dropmenuobj.y=getposOffset(obj, "top")
dropmenuobj.style.left=dropmenuobj.x-clearbrowseredge(obj, "rightedge")+obj.offsetWidth+"px"
dropmenuobj.style.top=dropmenuobj.y-clearbrowseredge(obj, "bottomedge")+"px"
dropmenuobj.style.visibility="visible"
obj.onclick=hidetip
}
}

function hidetip(e){
dropmenuobj.style.visibility="hidden"
dropmenuobj.style.left="-500px"
}

function createhintbox(){
var divblock=document.createElement("div")
divblock.setAttribute("id", "hintbox")
document.body.appendChild(divblock)
}

if (window.addEventListener)
window.addEventListener("load", createhintbox, false)
else if (window.attachEvent)
window.attachEvent("onload", createhintbox)
else if (document.getElementById)
window.onload=createhintbox

</script>

i change the bold one into onclick but now the hint cant appear after being hide.

thx in advance

Actually, if you just leave it the way it is, the tip will disappear when the user mouses out of the tip's activating trigger (the [?] in the demo). This is a nice effect. But if instead you want the tip to hide on the second click, so that it's a toggle (additions/changes highlighted):

window.addEventListener("load", createhintbox, false)
else if (window.attachEvent)
window.attachEvent("onload", createhintbox)
else if (document.getElementById)
window.onload=createhintbox

</script>

Notice the one commented line:


//obj.onmouseout=hidetip

If you leave that in (remove the red comment slashes), the tip will disappear either on the second click or on mouse out of the trigger, this might be nice too.

thiswill toggle the visibility onclick
or hide the hintbox on clicking the hint box
