I've been trying to use the Richfaces 4 tooltip demo from the RichFaces Showcase, but I can't get the tooltip to show up. I've tried variations on the two tooltips shown below, but I can't get any tooltip information to display. Do you know what I'm missing to make this work?
I think that tooltips only work when attached to input controls. So they wouldn't be applied to links or panels.
You can fake it, though, since basically a tooltip is a floating HTML DIV that's made visible when you mouse into/over a page element. It's made invisible by mousing out and/or a timeout on mouse movement.
Sometimes the only way things ever got fixed is because people became uncomfortable.
