DHTML Lab - DHTML Diner - IE4: Toggling TITLE Value Display | 2
|home / experts / dhtml / diner / titletog|
This is an Internet Explorer 4 technique. The in-page examples will only work in Explorer 4 Windows and Explorer 4 Macintosh.
Toggling the Display of TITLE Values
Tags with TITLE= Attribute
The rationale is, of course, that all tags that display and/or format something on the user screen can have a TITLE= attribute. That is, all tags that can be moused over. It foresees that any future new tags with this behavior should have the attribute.
<TAG TITLE="a text string goes here"></TAG>
Navigator does not presently support the TITLE= attribute. In all probability, the next version will.
There, that about exhausts the subject! On this page, as you may have noticed if using Explorer 4, there are many pop-up tool tips created by the TITLE= attribute. You may have found them useful, or simply an annoyance. In the left column, we have included a button that toggles the use of tool tips. Click it once, the tool tips stop popping up. Click it again, they resume their default behavior. How do we do this? With a short script discussed on the next page.
