I am trying to implement help text when the user hovers over an input field. Is there any simple way of achieving this? I see that there is a Bootstrap Tooltip widget but I'm not sure how to use this. In particular if I have a form with a Contact dataview containing a Surname textbox, what do I need to do to specify and enable hover text on the Surname textbox. I am relatively new to Mendix and not a java programmer. Any assistance gratefully received.
The way you want to use the Bootstrap Tooltip widget is as follows.
In your dataview form, add a special class to the Surname attribute, say surnameTip
Add the Bootstrap Tooltip widget to your form, and also set the 'Target element class' property to surnameTip.
Set the tooltip mode and position as desired.
Set the tooltip text to display in 'Default text' (or alternatively use a microflow source that returns a calculated string value).
