Before we begin, please accept my apologies for not posting this tutorial sooner. I know at least two or three people were beginning to wonder if I’d ever finish what I started with this tooltip series. Please also forgive me if the phrase “flip your tip” has a double meaning in some ultra-hip corner of the universe. If it does, I can assure you that I am unaware of it—ignorant and unhip, to be sure, but more important, innocent. Now, on with the show.
In my last three tutorials, I discussed how to put together a very simple tooltip, and I introduced a different feature or concept in each one. In an effort to continue in the spirit of simplicity, I will refrain from repeating the explanations of previous posts and instead simply direct your attention to them before we begin:
- Simple Tooltip for Huge Number of Elements
- Binding Multiple Events to Reduce Redundancy with Event Delegation Tooltips
- Using setTimeout to Delay Showing Event Delegation Tooltips
