Apply tooltips dynamically

Project Description

Introduction

With ftw.tooltip you are able to dynamically add tooltips to every DOM element, which is selectable by jQuery and allows the title attribute.

Certified: 01/2013

Installing

Add ftw.tooltip to your buildout configuration:

[instance]
eggs =
  ftw.tooltip

Import ftw.tooltip default profile.

Usage

Basically you have to register named ITooltipSource adapters. They will be queried by a view, which generates the necessary JS code.

There are two example tooltip-source adapter, to show how they work

  • Static text example.
  • Dynamic text example, which reads the title attribute of the selected DOM element.

You can load both examples on your site by register the following adapters:

>>> from ftw.tooltip.demo_tooltip_source import (DemoStaticTooltipSource,
...    DemoDynamicTooltipSource)
>>> from zope.component import provideAdapter
>>> provideAdapter(DemoStaticTooltipSource, name="demo1")
>>> provideAdapter(DemoDynamicTooltipSource, name="demo2")

Or if you are using zcml:

<adapter
    factory="ftw.tooltip.demo_tooltip_source.DemoStaticTooltipSource" name="demo1" />
<adapter
    factory="ftw.tooltip.demo_tooltip_source.DemoDynamicTooltipSource" name="demo2" />
  • “demo1” puts a tooltip on #portal-logo.
  • “demo2” puts tooltips on every global-nav element and show the given title attribute as tooltip.

Example

It’s easy to define a new ITooltipSource adapter. The following example will show a tooltip “This is the edit bar” only on folderish types (check global_condition) and of course only if “documentEditable” css class is available:

>>> from zope.component import adapts
>>> from zope.interface import implements, Interface
>>> from ftw.tooltip.interfaces import ITooltipSource
>>> from plone.app.layout.navigation.interfaces import INavigationRoot
>>> from Products.CMFCore.interfaces import IFolderish

>>> class EditBarTooltip(object):
...     """Base demo static tooltip source. Use a given text"""
...     implements(ITooltipSource)
...     adapts(Interface, Interface)
...
...     def __init__(self, context, request):
...         self.context = context
...         self.request = request
...
...     def global_condition(self):
...         return bool(IFolderish.providedBy(self.context))
...
...     def tooltips(self):
...         return [{
...             'selector': u'#edit-bar',
...             'text': u'This is the edit bar',
...             'condition': 'div.documentEditable'}]

Register the adapter with ZCML:

>>> <adapter
...    factory="your.module.EditBarTooltip" name="my_edit_bar_tooltip" />

You may want to use your own tooltip layout: Just register a BrowserView named “ftw_tooltip_layout” and return the tooltip layout you prefere.

Or you can fully customize the tooltip paramters by register a BrowserView named “ftw_tooltip_custom_config” - check jquerytools documentation for more details.

Small customization example:

{
    offset: [-10, 10],
    position: 'right center',
    opacity: '0.7',
}

Example: tooltip using exsting html

It’s also possible to use an html-tag as data source(must be a sibling of the selctor) instead of the title attribute. For this case only a small adjustment is necessary:

The ITooltipSource adapter should return a js-selector in the content attribute instead of a text attribute:

>>> from zope.component import adapts
>>> from zope.interface import implements, Interface
>>> from ftw.tooltip.interfaces import ITooltipSource
>>> from plone.app.layout.navigation.interfaces import INavigationRoot
>>> from Products.CMFCore.interfaces import IFolderish

>>> class EditBarTooltip(object):
...     """Base demo static tooltip source. Use a given text"""
...     implements(ITooltipSource)
...     adapts(Interface, Interface)
...
...     def __init__(self, context, request):
...         self.context = context
...         self.request = request
...
...     def global_condition(self):
...         return bool(IFolderish.providedBy(self.context))
...
...     def tooltips(self):
...         return [{
...             'selector': u'#edit-bar',
...             'condition': 'div.documentEditable',
...             'content': u'.tabbedview-tooltip-data'}]

The only constraint in the html structure, wich must receive attention, is that the content tag must be a sibling of the selector tag. For example:

... <a href="/edit_bar" id="edit_bar"></a>
... <div class="tabbedview-tooltip-data">
...     <div class="tooltip-content">
...         <div class="tooltip-header">Tooltip Headeer</div>
...         <div class="tooltip-breadcrumb">Lorem ipsum ...</div>
...     </div>
... </div>
