How is this a SharePoint question? – Dave Wise Dec 14 '12 at 18:20
I need to this inside a share-point visual webpart – raky Dec 14 '12 at 18:25
please be more precise about your problem. So, is your problem about including jquery (and a tooltip-script) to a visual webpart? Or getting images from list? Or... see my point? Then please tell us what you're trying (code examples ftw) or where you encounter your problem and we might be able to help you. – Dominik Dec 14 '12 at 19:07

Without really knowing a lot about what you are having issues with here is some generic information.

You can include a reference to the jquery js and any plugins using a sharepoint script link. Similar to this (modify path accordingly).

<SharePoint:ScriptLink ID="jQuery" runat="server" Name="/jquery.min.js" />

It is also a good idea to create your own namespace so you can be sure you are targeting your code and not something else already existing in SP.

Here is a link to a jquery plugin that will help with tooltips, a google search will also help you find a bunch of others.

Maybe post some of the HTML etc and we can answer more specificly.

Is your question on actually setting the tooltip, or making the images clickable within the tooltip? I personally like the qTip2 plugin for tooltips.

You can bind an event to each tooltip like $(".dropdown").on("img", "click", function() { do something });. What I ususally do for something like this is add a data attribute to the image, something like data-clickurl that contains the URL I want the user to go to when they click on the image. Then you can use something like $(".dropdown").on("img", "click", function() { window.location=$(this).attr("data-clickurl"); }); to send the user to that URL when they click the image.
