View Full Version : Form fields help "plugin"

21 Sep 2010, 2:52 AM
Is there any way or any plugin to show helps for form fields? I would like to show, for example, a help icon at one side of the form field, and when mouse over displays a tool tip.

I know you can add tool tips to the form fields, but the user doesn't know what fields have helps.

Any idea?

I'm SURE I've seen a plugin doing just this fairly recently but I can't find it anymore...

Alternatively I came across Animal's field help text plugin which might be of use until you find it... http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?77984-Field-help-text-plugin.

Thanks! Do you remember any keyword to look for my "desired" plugin? Because I would like some hidden text which appears only on user demand.

I'm afraid not - i had a look through the first 4 or 5 pages of the UX and plugins forum but couldnt see it... :(

Could be something like http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?77984-Field-help-text-plugin.&p=429370#post429370

This is more or less what I want... but I have problems aligning the field label and the box, depends on the image size... How could I align them?
