I have an existing custom ASPX form that captures data to a SharePoint list. A new requirement has been received to provide fly-out tooltip type in-line help boxes on fields to make it easier for users to understand what they are filling in.

I was hoping to pull the text for the tooltips from a separate SharePoint list for each field into the form.

Are there any pre-made libraries that provide something like this or should I go down the route of creating something from scratch?


Check out this threads.


You'll have to modify add/new/edit forms of the list or document library you are working with. Then you can use any of the numerous tooltip js libraries i.e. http://jqueryui.com/tooltip/ to add tooltips to your form.
