A MooTools plugin that displays image tooltips when you rollover links and thumbnails.


How to use

HTML markup:


	Standard tip:
	<a href="#" class="imagetip" data-image="image.jpg" title="Label">link</a>.

	Customized tip:
	<a href="#" class="mylinks" data-image="image.jpg" title="Label">link</a>.

JS code:


// Just create the object in the DOM ready event
window.addEvent('domready', function() {
	var myImageTip = new MooImageTip();

// If you want to customize the tip, you can use some options
window.addEvent('domready', function() {
	var myAdvancedImageTip = new MooImageTip({
		offset: { x: 4, y: 4 },   // Offset relative to mouse position
		className: 'mylinks',     // This is the links class name
		tipId: 'mytip',           // This is the tip ID, for styling
		follow: false,            // Tip will not follow the mouse cursor
		fx: { duration: 'short' } // Additional Fx options

CSS rules:


/* Standard tip styling (default ID is "mooimagetip") */
#mooimagetip {
	padding: 5px;
	background-color: #CCCCCC; }

/* Customized tip styling (our ID is "mytip") */
#mytip {
	padding: 5px;
	background-color: #CCCCFF;
