Im trying to display a tooltip over an item as the user selects/highlight it in a HtmlSelectOneListbox. It seems that SelectItem UI doesnt have a setTitle. Any other way to get around this. I can't even capture the highlight event (only the value change ). I dont mind setting title to the whole HtmlSelectOneListbox but I need to capture the highlight event in the listitems/selectitems because the title/tooltip is dependent on which item is selected.
