The other day I received the following email:
[...] thanks for your ADF articles. I will need an urgent technical help. It would be highly appreciated if you help me.
I have around 20 input text boxes in my page which shows all the current values when I open popup.
I have a hashmap which has column name and old value. Based on this I will need to show a tooptip like if I click a text box it should show a tool tip with old value.
How do I show the tool tip (shortDesc) for each text box dynamically using that hashmap?
Thank you so much.
Normally I would not respond to a query like this – I am really too busy most of the times to act as someone’s personal helpdesk. However, this was just a nice little challenge to start the day with. So, against my better judgement I responded with a few lines explaining the approach I would take. Followed by an email that had an ADF application as attachment with this functionality implemented.
In this article, I will briefly explain how I went about this. At the end, the ADF application is attached as well.
