Rollover text in Web dynamically

Need on-the-fly help rolling over your links? In my case, links generally end up being lists in a view somewhere.

Need on-the-fly help rolling over your links? In my case, links generally end up being lists in a view somewhere.

This shouldn't really be a big deal. Use the <title> tag of HTML. Supported by IE4 and NS, you can exploit this and mimic rollover help in your Domino web designs.

In this case I have a series of values in a view that the links are constructed from. I simply added an extra field to the form for the document contained in the view and then grabbed the text from that field with a DBLookup to generate the title tag in HTML.

Works like a charm.

@If(ErrorOccurred; "Error Message";"<a title="" +RollOverHelpText +  "" 
target=_blank href="http://" + Server_Name + "/" + DBPath + "/" + View
+ "/" + DocUNID + "?OpenDocument">" + LinkText + "</A>")
