Hi all,

I want to use JQUERY for displaying tooltips. But firstly , after going through the various sites, i am not able to know how to use this plug-in.

Secondly, I need your views, can we use JQUERY to display such a tooltip that show data that we fetch with the help of AJAX. In short dynamic data.

And also can jquery help me to show Graphs (Dynamic) in tooltip.

I will really appreciate if anyone could help me to show the right way in implementing tooltip.

Thanks
Have a nice day!!

Which plugin? There are hundreds and hundreds of them.

Depending upon the plugin, probably. Just be aware that tooltips should appear fairly quickly and a fetch back to the server may take some time under heavy loads.

And also can jquery help me to show Graphs (Dynamic) in tooltip.
In a "true" tooltip (one created with the HTML title attribute) no. Nothing can do that. HTML only allows text. But if the plugin you are talking about (and we don;t know which one that is yet) creates "faux" tooltips using a positioned layer, then probably.
