Adding Pop Up Text to Hotspots for use on Web

You Can View User Feedback To This Tip

Need to add pop up text for a hotspot in Notes to be used through a Web client? Here's a nifty way to do it... only works in IE though.

Use Span tags around the hotspot. The code looks something like this:

 <span alt="Pop Up Text Here" title="Title Here"
onmouseover="window.status='Window Status Bar Text Here';
return true" onmouseout="window.status="; return true">
**Your hotspot would go here** </span>



  • You do not need to use span tags for this feature. Simply put your HTML code (alt, onMouseover, onMouseout, etc.) in the "Other" field on the HTML tags tab or the property box.
    (Action Hotspot Properties --> HTML Tab --< Other)
