View Full Version : DHTMLToolTips character limit

Is there some character limit imposed on this utility? It seems as though when I put in too much text, it simply doens't display.

Any way to override this limit?

Probably not, more likely a syntax error. Like if the string to show is delimited with single quotes:

'this is the string to show'

You cannot have one inside it unless it is escaped:

'It's not allowed'

should be:

'It\'s OK now'

No, it's definatly not that ... we have no single quotes ...

Should I paste the code?

The same is true of double quotes if used to delimit strings and there can be a nesting effect of quotes within quotes used to delimit functions onmouseover and other events. Other syntax rules and conventions too numerous to mention must also be observed. Formatting (like the width allowed) could also be an issue but, if that is the problem the likely result would be a partial showing of the tip rather than none at all. Posting the code would be a good move, a better one is to supply a link to the page:

Please provide your code -

PLEASE: Include the URL to your problematic webpage that you want help with. (Best)


Put code tags:

around your code (as explained here (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/misc.php?do=bbcode#code)) in a message here so that it appears like so:

Like John said, a URL to the problem page on your site would be helpful here. Also, when you say "the text doesn't display", do you get any JavaScript errors popping up (assuming JS debugging isn't disabled in your browser)?
