Tooltip.js 0.5.0 Released

I just pushed out Tooltip.js 0.5.0. I had planned to release 0.4.0 tonight, indeed I had written the ChangeLog and tagged the release…

Then I went Ego Surfing, and someone mentioned the ability to choose the activator using a special “for_$id” class, for example, code="tooltip for_link" would point to the element with id="link". If the script cannot find said element, it automatically falls back to the original previousSibling behavior.

I also added the ability to set the callbacks for the show/hide events, so you can easily swop-out the Effect.Appear and Effect.Fade effects.

This is done using:

  1.  Tooltip.showMethod = Effect.BlindDown;
  2.  Tooltip.hideMethod = Effect.BlindUp;

The ChangeLog for 0.4.0 and 0.5.0 is this:

Version 0.5.0

  • It is now possible to set a callback method for the show and hide events, set Tooltip.showMethod and/or Tooltip.hideMethod
  • Adding “for_” followed by an element ID to the “class” attribute will allow you to bind a Tooltip to any element in a page

Version 0.4.0

  • Make sure only events registered for show/hide do just that, rather than toggle

regardless of which event they were registered for.
