Script: Image w/ description tooltip v2.0

http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/imagetooltip.htm

I was wondering how I would go about changing the scroll over in the above code so that the text is beside the image and not under it.

Is there no way for this to be done?

From the .js file:

createtip:function($, tipid, tipinfo){
if ($('#'+tipid).length==0){ //if this tooltip doesn't exist yet
return $('<div id="' + tipid + '" class="ddimgtooltip" />').html(
'<div style="text-align:center"><img src="' + tipinfo[0] + '" /></div>'
+ ((tipinfo[1])? '<div style="text-align:left; margin-top:5px">'+tipinfo[1]+'</div>' : '')
)
.css(tipinfo[2] || {})
.appendTo(document.body)
}
return null
},


You would modify that to create a different kind of HTML, probably with some CSS.

Here's one way to start:

createtip:function($, tipid, tipinfo){
if ($('#'+tipid).length==0){ //if this tooltip doesn't exist yet
return $('<div id="' + tipid + '" class="ddimgtooltip" />').html(
'<div class="tipimg"><img src="' + tipinfo[0] + '" /></div>'
+ ((tipinfo[1])? '<div class="tiptext">'+tipinfo[1]+'</div>' : '')
)
.css(tipinfo[2] || {})
.appendTo(document.body)
}
return null
},

Then in your CSS, give the styles you'd like to the classes tipimg and tiptext.
For example, use float:left; for both.
