    Great plugin! I just wish a user could hold it for as long as he wants by placing his mouse on it. When he removes cursor – it closes by its timeout.

    Hey, Great work. Just wanted to know if Tooltip can be shown on top of a text box on button click.

  3. Great plugin! I’m a firm believer in utilizing tooltips on web forms for enhanced usability. I’ll give gips a try!

  4. A very neat effect, can I use the plug-in for navigation menus, or only for styling textboxes?

    I tried using this in my MVC application. However, it only works on IE. Doesn’t seem to work on Chrome and Firefox. What am I missing?

  10. Very straightforward solution. I like the markup too.
    Most tooltip solutions require tons of BS to go through so I will give this a go in my next project. 🙂

  11. Hi there,

    I suggest you do not use an image for the close tag. Its hard to style it using CSS. I suggest you use something like to add the close button.

    • Thanks for the valuable suggestion. I’ll definitely incorporate it in to gips.

      I agree. I’m keeping all my icons in a single sprite sheet to reduce http requests. I’ve changed line 18 in the plugin to be a span, then I’ve used a background image in the CSS (+width and height). I’d also recommend getting rid of all the extra space in the css for all the single declarations.
