Hi All,

We are using Itext for implementing PDF and success fully implemented however we are facing some issues with image tool tips. Actually we have some image and for the same we need to show some tool tip message when user mouse over on the image.

First of all I would like to know will it be possible to have tool tips in PDF with IText if yes could you please help me in implementing same.

Thanks in advance.

PDFs do not support tooltips for images. You'll need to find some other way of showing that information.
