setting tooltips on a cell by cell basis

Hi,

I would like to set tooltips on certain cells within a colum (but not every cell in the column)

Currently I am setting the tooltip as follows:

grid.getTemplate("column",cpos).setAttribute("title", function(){return this.getProperty("item/tooltip")});
grid.defineProperty("data/tooltip", function(rpos, cpos){return tooltiptxt;});
grid.setProperty("column/tooltip", function(rpos){return tooltiptxt});


This sets it for the entire column though. Is there any way to set it just for a specific cell? So that other cells in the same column / row have no tooltip.?

Thanks

Your function should return the tooltip text for the specific cell only and null or empty string for other cells (based on rpos, cpos arguments).

i alex,

thanks for the prompt reply. And like every one who uses activewidgets I am hugely impressed.

I think the issue I am having is that when I call refresh after the lines above every cell in the column has a tooltip..

I also have the same problem after I set the background colour on specific cells using the following code:

document.getElementById
("grid1.data.item:"+rpos+".item:"+cpos).style.background = "yellow";


The colour to use is decided based on arbitrary data attributes and not its value... So i set it when the cell is initially populated with data.

After the refresh() call the background colours get reset. Is that correct behaviour?


Thanks

To show tooltip on one cell only you should modify your tooltip function like this:

grid.defineProperty("data/tooltip", function(i, j){
if (i == rpos && j == cpos ) {
  return tooltiptxt;
}
else {
  return null;
}
});


The function will be called for each cell anyway, but only one cell will get the tooltip message.

The same should be done for changing the cell color - define color property on the data model and attach the style attribute (calling the item/color property) to the cell template.

hi,

I dit it different I installed an mouseover event with an action only a mouseover effect on a particular column like this:
Advantage is that a normal tooltip can be insufficient because the cell contents is bigger than a standard tooltip.

Active.Templates.Text.prototype.setEvent ("onmouseover", onmouseover );

penmodelinggrid = Active.Controls.Grid.subclass();

openmodelinggrid.init = function () {
var obj = this.prototype;
obj.setAction("mouseover", function(src) {
var e = this.getOpenmodelingProperty ("currentevent");
var oobject = geteventsource (e);
var cid = oobject.id;
var nlen = cid.length;
var ccolumn11 = ".item:11";
var nlencolumn11 = ccolumn11.length;
var npos = cid.indexOf ( ccolumn11 );
if (npos != -1 && (npos == nlen - nlencolumn11) ) { // only mouse over effect in the twelfth column
var drag = document.getElementById("draggingPart");
if (drag == null) {
drag = document.createElement("DIV");
drag.setAttribute("id","draggingPart");
//drag.style.MozOpacity = 0.8;
//drag.style.filter = "alpha(opacity=50)";
drag.style.font = "menu";
drag.style.border = "1px solid threedlightshadow";
drag.style.backgroundColor = "#ffffff";
drag.style.width = "50%";
drag.style.width = "50%";
}

drag.innerHTML = cid + " " + src.getProperty("item/text");
drag.style.left = _pagePosX(e)+ 20; // offset +10 otherwise target == movingdata;
drag.style.top = _pagePosY(e);
drag.style.position = "absolute";

//var drag = document.createElement("DIV");
//drag.setAttribute("id","draggingPart");

/*-moz-opacity:0.5; filter:alpha(opacity=50);*/
document.body.appendChild(drag);
}
});
}

function onmouseover (e) {
if (this.setOpenmodelingProperty) {
e.cancelBubble = true;
e.returnValue = false;
this.setOpenmodelingProperty ("currentevent", e);
if (this.action) {
this.action ("mouseover");
}
}
}

of couse base on open modeling.
