I'm not good with jQuery or java script, that said, I've got a situation where my tooltip width is coming up too large.  When I hover over either of the last two images, it widens the screen and a big piece of the tooltip is off screen (it only does this when the overall window is pretty wide).  Here is a screen shot:

I've looked at the script that I think is determining the size, but I can't figure out what to change - here is the script:

SyntaxEditor Code Snippet

"<script type='text/javascript'>
osjs( document ).ready( function()
{
    var targets = $( '[rel~=tooltip]' ),
        target  = false,
        tooltip = false,
        title   = false;
    
    targets.unbind();
    targets.bind( 'mouseenter', function()
    {
        target  = osjs( this );
        tip     = target.attr( 'title' );
        tooltip = osjs( '<div id=""tooltip""></div>' );
 
        if( !tip || tip == '' )
            return false;
 
        target.removeAttr( 'title' );
        tooltip.css( 'opacity', 0 )
               .html( tip )
               .appendTo( 'body' );
 
        var init_tooltip = function()
        {
            if( osjs( window ).width() < tooltip.outerWidth() * 1.5 )
                tooltip.css( 'max-width', osjs( window ).width() / 2 );
            else
                tooltip.css( 'max-width', 340 );
 
            var pos_left = target.offset().left + ( target.outerWidth() / 2 ) - ( tooltip.outerWidth() / 2 ),
                pos_top  = target.offset().top - tooltip.outerHeight() - 20;
 
            if( pos_left < 0 )
            {
                pos_left = target.offset().left + target.outerWidth() / 2 - 20;
                tooltip.addClass( 'left' );
            }
            else
                tooltip.removeClass( 'left' );
 
            if( pos_left + tooltip.outerWidth() > $( window ).width() )
            {
                pos_left = target.offset().left - tooltip.outerWidth() + target.outerWidth() / 2 + 20;
                tooltip.addClass( 'right' );
            }
            else
                tooltip.removeClass( 'right' );
 
            if( pos_top < 0 )
            {
                var pos_top  = target.offset().top + target.outerHeight();
                tooltip.addClass( 'top' );
            }
            else
                tooltip.removeClass( 'top' );
 
            tooltip.css( { left: pos_left, top: pos_top } )
                   .animate( { top: '+=10', opacity: 1 }, 50 );
        };
 
        init_tooltip();
        osjs( window ).resize( init_tooltip );
 
        var remove_tooltip = function()
        {
            tooltip.animate( { top: '-=10', opacity: 0 }, 50, function()
            {
                osjs( this ).remove();
            });
 
            target.attr( 'title', tip );
        };
 
        target.bind( 'mouseleave', remove_tooltip );
        tooltip.bind( 'click', remove_tooltip );
    });
});
</script>"

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Cory

Have you tried to use the Info or Tooltip patterns from Silk UI? 

If you can't use them I will try to take a look at that component.

This application isn't using Silk (yet - it will be converted in the next few months).  For the time being I actually changed this:

        var init_tooltip = function()
        {
            if( osjs( window ).width() < tooltip.outerWidth() * 1.5 )
                tooltip.css( 'max-width', osjs( window ).width() / 2 );
            else
                tooltip.css( 'max-width', 340 );


to this:

        var init_tooltip = function()
        {
            if( osjs( window ).width() < tooltip.outerWidth() * 2 )
                tooltip.css( 'max-width', osjs( window ).width() / 2 );
            else
                tooltip.css( 'max-width', 340 );

and it seems to have gotten me around the issue (unless you have a super super wide screen).


Thanks
