An easy tooltip plugin tutorial

This is a simple tooltip plugin. You have some parameter that you can use but not mandatory. This is very simple. Not a hot-&-sexy tooltip but you can work with it. Lets check the codes.

HTML Code:
[html]

[/html]

In head tag:
[html]

[/html]

And the js-script:
[javascript]
$(document).ready(function() {
$(‘.help’).jTooltip();
$(‘.info’).jTooltip({
tip: ‘info’, //info, alert or help
});
$(‘.alert’).jTooltip({
tip: ‘alert’, //info, alert or help
color: ‘red’ //any color or color code
});
});
[/javascript]

jTooltip.css

[css]
.tipText{
display:none;
}

.jTooltip{
width:200px;
background:url(../images/arrow.png) no-repeat center bottom #FFFFFF;
position:absolute;
left:0;
padding-bottom:16px;
font-size:10px;
line-height:100%;
}

.jTooltip .jText{
border:2px solid #000000;
border-bottom:none;
padding:7px 7px;
}

.jTooltip img.jIcon{
margin-left:5px;
}

.jTooltip-v{
width:200px;
background:url(../images/arrow-v.png) no-repeat center top #FFFFFF;
position:absolute;
left:0;
padding-top:16px;
font-size:10px;
line-height:100%;
}

.jTooltip-v .jText{
border:2px solid #000000;
border-top:none;
padding:7px 7px;
}

.jTooltip-v img.jIcon{
margin-left:5px;
}

[/css]

jTooltip.js plugin:

[javascript]
(function($) {
$.fn.jTooltip = function(options)
{
var settings =
{
‘tip’: ‘help’,
‘color’: ‘#000′
};

var tooltipClass = “jTooltip”;

var methods =
{
tooltip: function(obj)
{
obj.hover(function(e) {
if(e.pageY < 100) tooltipClass = "jTooltip-v";

var html =obj.find('span.tipText').html();
obj.css({'position':'relative'});
switch(settings.tip)
{
case 'help':
var image = "“;
break;

case ‘alert’:
var image = ““;
break;

case ‘info’:
var image = ““;
break;
}

html = “

” + image + html + “

“;
obj.append(html);

tlObj = obj.find(‘.’+tooltipClass);

var jTop = -(tlObj.height() + obj.height() + 3);
if(e.pageY < 100) jTop = obj.height();
tlObj.css({'color': settings.color, 'top': jTop});

}, function() {
$('.'+tooltipClass).remove();
obj.css({'position':'static'});
});
}
};

return this.each(function() {
if(options) $.extend(settings, options);
methods.tooltip($(this));
});
};
})(jQuery);
[/javascript]

This is my second plugin, but I think it will help new developers to learn about jquery plugin tutorial.
