A tooltip is a small box of explanatory text (usually on yellow background) that appears when the mouse pointer is held over a button or other interface element.
In Microsoft Dynamics CRM we can define constraints (masks) on certain fields. It is desired that the user is well informed about the text’s format, in real time, when triggering the onmousemove event on a certain field.
In this tutorial, we show you a function that generates tooltips on CRM’s forms, triggered by mouse events, such as: onclick, ondblclick, onmouseover, onmousedown and especially, onmousemove.
Here are some prints (examples) of different types and styles of tooltips made with the function presented in this tutorial:
Account Entity – Account Name – onmousemove event
Account Entity – Primary Contact – onmousemove event
Account Entity – Body – ondblclick event
Account Entity – Account Number – onmousemove event (default Windows style)
We hope you found this solution useful 🙂 If you find, by any chance, any mistakes in the tutorial, please let us know. Thank you.
