I have a hyperlink and whenever I do a mouse over it should show other page. Eg: <a href="">Title</a>, on mouse over it should show page. '

I appreciate your response. Either jquery or javascript solution is fine.

What do you mean by "should show page"? Shall it just change the URL on the link or shall it actually show the page - in like a preview? –  Daniel Ziga Mar 1 '12 at 16:15

In html:

<a href="" title=" page">Title</a>

By jQuery:

$("a[]").attr("title", " page");

By JavaScript (linkElement should be gotten previously):

linkElement.title = " page";

Use onhover attribute. You should create a modal window in than event. –  Aviw Mar 1 '12 at 19:23

I tried that one, it is not working. Please let me know if it works for you. –  4uSharePoint Mar 1 '12 at 17:17

you can try this


function Tip()
  var s = $('[id*=myanchor]').attr('href');

function Untip()

css :

 a.tooltip div {display:none; padding:10px 3px; margin-left:18px; width:130px;}
 a.tooltip:hover div{display:inline; position:absolute; border:1px solid #cccccc; background:#ffffff; color:#6c6c6c;}

your anchor Tag should be like this :

 <a href="" class="tooltip" id="myanchor" onmouseover="Tip();" onmouseout="Untip()">Title<div id="mydiv" style="background-color:Black;color:White;text-align:left !important; width:auto;height:auto;"></div></a>
