Hint Box on Mouse Over Field Labels




I am trying to add a hint that activates when someone mouses over a field label, something that is relatively common in html. However, it seems from talking to support that Caspio does not support that. Has anyone else dealt with that? and/or figured out a way to accomplish that? I want to still retain the sorting ability over the fields, so having an html block is not a reasonable option for me.

Thank you for your responses.

As I understand, you want to add hints to the result's page column headers.

Insert following code into the footer of the results page.

<script type='text/javascript'>
var v_tables = document.getElementsByTagName('table');
if (v_tables[2]){
var v_masa = v_tables[2].getElementsByTagName('a');
v_masa[v_i].onmouseover = function(){ 

This example for result page with enabled "Search Again" or "Download" or "Advanced sorting" features.

If you don't have any of this features in the datapage, then replace v_tables[2] with v_tables[1] in the code.

And replace INSERT_YOUR_HINT_TEXT_HERE with you hint text.

Let me know if this helps.

Hi ShWolf:

That did not work for me.

I think my earlier description may have been misleading. What I am looking for is to add 'Tooltips' to the labels of the Caspio Results Table (i.e., the Titles to the Columns), that activate on a mouseover, e.g., while also retaining the sorting ability. Something like what's talked about here for implementation in a basic HTML page,

But is not so easy with Caspio, I believe, as it is script-driven.

Thanks for you response, and please help if you can.
