Title: Tool tip doesn't work
Post by: kiscompany on June 30, 2015, 00:08:51 am
Hello,

I am running Virtuemart 3.08

I have a registration form here

http://www.chinomayorista.com.ar/registro-tienda

I need a blue icon with a tooltip at the right hand side of some fields. I tried to add the tooltip text in the Shopper Field Details (Description, field-tip ) but it doesn't show nothing in the frontend.

What I am doing wrong?

Thank you in advance

Hi,

you will need to modify the edit_address_userfields.php in the user view folder in your existing template overrides or create a template override.

open the file and find:
Code: [Select]
<?php echo $field['formcode'?>


right after it insert the following

Code: [Select]
<?php if (!empty($field['description'])) {
  echo 
JHtml::tooltip (strip_tags($field['description']), '''tooltip.png');
?>

What the "hack" is this?
It's fantastic, and thank you so much. I'm glad that I have found the solution, but excuse me, shouldn't it be part of the Joomla core? Tooltips may be very important parts of a website os webshop, and the tooltip options are there in the backend. Is there any explanation?
Thanks anyway.
