Aight first off excellent script, just needing a few umm tips where/how to get it as im needing

Secondly link to what im talking bout Click Me! (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/dhtmltooltip.htm)

Alrighty after a post in the PHP forums (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8958) about how to get it to work with a php script i finaly got that sorted, but now im wondering if its possible to get the mouseover part of this script to look like this

what im aiming for is a sorta dynamic mouseover thus the php/mysql integration any ideas if the 2 column thing is possible?

Well theoretically sure, but the trouble I see is the rather messy HTML you'll have to use to get the tooltip to look that way:


ddrivetip('TEXT TO DISPLAY', 'OPTIONAL BACKGROUND COLOR', OPTIONAL TIP WIDTH)

Mainly, replacing "TEXT TO DISPLAY" with the desired HTML content. To cut down on the HTML mess, I guess one obvious route is to use CSS in combination, something like:


ddrivetip("<div class='leftcolumn'>Left column stuff here</div><div class='rightcolumn'>Right column stuff here</div>", 'OPTIONAL BACKGROUND COLOR', OPTIONAL TIP WIDTH)

where "leftcolumn" and "rightcolumn" would be two CSS classes that create the 2 column look you want. Still, it's not pretty.
