    Default dynamic tooltips from database

    Hi guys and gals,

    I have a database populated with parts. When the results are displayed, only a picture and the name of the part are shown, with a link to click for more info on that item.

    What I want to do is like www.wowhead.com or worldofwarcraft.com and have popup tooltips with the info from the database.

    Click the links and mouse over some of the items to get the idea.

    Bottom line, i just wanna populate tooltips for each item with fields from the database, and style the tooltips with CSS


    I'm not sure where to start.

    Could someone possibly give me some research advice on what i need to look into .....javascript - ajax - DOM

    Thanks in advanced

    Looking for something similar too. Would like it to dynamically assign tooltips and data to keywords. I have seen this done with Text Link Advertising, where a set of specified keywords are used to create links after page load. Any idea?

    hey mondomx,

    I know what you are referring to. Ive come across it researching my project. It's commonly referred to as intellitext.....try googling that and it might get you a little further
