When i use a tooltip on a layout in filemaker pro, I don't see my tooltip in the same layout with WebDirect.
In the manuel, there is written tooltips works with webirect.
Are you sure you're using the tooltips settings box and not the object name box? I've seen them mixed up before.
I have seen tooltips working in WebDirect, and the documentation lists it as supported as well.
The only other thing I can figure is that you're using an incompatible web browser to view your webdirect layouts.
Thank you for answering.
Yes, i'm sure because the tooltips works with FileMaker Pro.
But it don't work with the same layout with safari and webdirect.
I use safari with mavericks.
Another developper says he has the same problem than me.
Could you send me a screen shot of a tooltips on your web browser, please?
Safari and the server are under osX 10.9.
"Tooltips" (as browsers use them) may need to be set based on browser used. To cover 'all' bases, I tend to use this for images (including image maps and anchors (hyperlinks):
... title="tooltip goes here" alt="tooltip goes here" ...
That seems to work most if the time. I suggest you research whichever browser is giving you fits and see what attributes they recommend for these.

Thanks for answering but... i can't choose the attributes because webdirect does it.
I've done a bug report and i'm waiting for the answer.
No, but you may be able to view source (in the browser) and see what attributes are created by WD. the search for the browser to see what's required. If you have not the control of them, at least you'd know WHY you don't get them. Then put in that request to FMI for the next rev/version.

Tooltips don't work with label and image.
Not that you want to hear this, but for best performance, tool tips are one of the items to leave off a WebDirect layout... if possible. It adds more heavy XML ... to the data being pushed down the pipe to the browser.
Just a thought.
