    Tooltip Plugin Help

    TexasApexDeveloper

      Folks,

        I am trying to use the following plugin from the APEX Plugins site..: - Dynamic Action Plugin - Tooltip  

       

      APEX Version is 4.2.4, Browser is Firefox 24.. Theme 26 for application..

       

      I am running into issues with the label definition and displaying the mouseover help... The plugin author tells us to build a label definition like this:

       

      Label Template:

      <label for="#CURRENT_ITEM_NAME#" class="help-tip {x01:'#CURRENT_ITEM_NAME#'}" tabindex="999"><span class="optional">

       

       

      Label Template Name: label.help-tip

       

      I have built a demo application..

       

      Here is the access information:

      URL: http://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=4550:1:0:::::

      Workspace: homeworld

      username: demo

      password: demo

       

      Application # & Name: 31206, Plugin Issue

       

      Simple 2 page example.. Page 1 is a report that calls page 2.. First 2 items on page 2 have labels that should be displaying help text.. No Label is displayed..

       

      I hope someone can shine some light on the issue I am missing..

       

      Thank you,

          Hi,

           

          Login details to workspace do not work.

           

          But why you like use this plugin for item labels?

          Plugin fetch help text from database using Ajax from apex_application_page_items view.

           

          To avoid extra hits to database,

          you can e.g. create custom label template using styles and #CURRENT_ITEM_HELP_TEXT# substitution string to show tooltip help.

           

          You can find example of styles from here

          Item tooltip background not solid

           

          Regards,

          Jari

            Account was locked, now it is unlocked..

             

            Why I am doing it this way is, after I get the plugin working, I need to move the help text out of the APEX pages (and apex metadata tables> and in to a maintainable table for an application admin.. When the application is in place in production they want the ability to maintain the help text themselves..

             

            This plugin uses a query against the apex apex_application_page_items table, they will have a custom version of that table in their application schema..

             

            Thanks again Jari.. I know I am a pain sometimes..

             

            Thank you,

              Hi,

               

              Your page theme styles hide span tags inside label tag.

              So I did modify label template and removed span there.

               

              Also it seems so styles are maybe missing as tooltip is transparent.

              Because that I did add to page CSS inline

              .ui-tooltip {
                  background-color: #FAFAFA;
              }
              

               

              Regards,
              Jari
