tooltip not displaying all text

tooltip not displaying all text

tooltip not displaying all text

I used JQuery to add "title" to my label which works fine.

But the text is being truncated. Perhaps because it is too long. But this is what I am getting from the system as an error.

I am getting from my exception message and am writing it out to the tooltip (title):

{"Message":"Banyon.Franks.Business_Objects.Account.SaveProtected\nPostalCodeID cannot be Null"}

But when I hover my mouse over the label, the what I get is:

\nPostalCodeID cannot be Null"}

How do I get the tooltip to show the whole message.

Also, how do I get the "\n" to behave as I line break. I also tried <br/> but it won't break - it just shows "<br/>" on the screen.



RE: tooltip not displaying all text

you need to post your code.

different browsers have different limits for the display of the title attribute.

for more control over tooltips use a libary like qtip2.

consider also storing data about an input in the data attributes rather than title. then use it dynamically.
