While the library was originally designed to simply create context help tooltips, it has since grown into a significantly more versatile script. It is now possible to create a wide variety of dynamic layers, such as embedded windows, context menus and hidden blocks. Additional features of the library include sticky tips, tooltip fading, lifetime, relative positioning, class assignments, width adjustments, mouse dragging, captions, directionality, offset adjustments, adjustable activate/deactivate delay times, snapping to grid, fate adjustment (hide or destroy) and references to created tips. In short, this library is everything you need to create dynamic layers in the webpage.
To understand the different types of tooltips, please navigate through the demo to get a visual picture of the functionality first hand.

- Ubernyms: the ultimate text-replacement plugin
- The purpose of ubernyms is to allow you configure a set of frequently used abbreviations that will be automatically encoded nicely whenever you use them. The goal is to make them visible in a way that is literate for both humans and computers. In other words: we tag them appropriately for your computer, and expand them as necessary for humans.
Read what people are saying about DOM Tooltip!
I just wanted to thank you for DomTT; it has been a real lifesaver for me. We have been using the tooltip snippet provided by Macromedia to create interactive mouseovers to describe various textual artifacts, such as spans of text that have been deleted, but it does not compare with yours in any way shape or form (esp. when it comes to positioning and collision detection).
Thanks for an absolutely amazing script. This is something I'm wishing I had a long time ago. It is fantastic.
I must've tried dozens of tooltip scripts, and all of them were either coded in an extremely ugly way, didn't work, were hard to customise, or a combination of all. Your script is great, it's everything i was ever looking for! Thanks.
