I am using struts 2. I wanted to have the tooltip attribute with <html:a tag. I tried doing that by ><html:a href="/test.action" required="true" tooltip="Tool tip here">, but it doesnt work.

Any advise on this.. I searched the forum and I dont find the exact answer..

Which version of S2? Are you really using "html" as the S2 tag prefix?! I would strongly advise against that, since it will create confusion (S1 used "html" as the traditional prefix for the S1 HTML-oriented tags) and it's inaccurate, since many S2 tags don't produce HTML.

With Struts2 you can do something like this for tooltip -

<a href="<s:url action='logout'/>" title="click here to log out">Sign Out</a>

make sure you have struts tags loaded -
<%@ taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags" %>

That's something quite different than S2's tooltip support.

That's the standard HTML hover text; the tooltip support of S2 is JavaScript-based. The tag docs have tooltip info.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
