View Full Version : ExtJs ToolTip- Rendering Tooltip info like in tabular Fomat

17 May 2016, 10:05 PM
I have Grid Column header Designed like Following

{ xtype :'gridpanel', columns :[{ xtype : 'actioncolumn', header: '<img src="images/header.png" />', tooltip:'Praveen' width : 40, items : [{ icon : 'images/ignition_on.png', tooltip : 'Ignition On' }] }]}

As far as i read , ExtJS Grid Headers tooltip supports only string,But i wanted to Display tooltip in tabular format

{ xtype :'gridpanel', columns :[{ xtype : 'actioncolumn', header: '<img src="images/header.png" />', tooltip:'<table style='color:RED;font-weight: bold;'><tr><td>Total Number of Unique Values:</td><td>3</td></tr><tr><td>Male</td><td>200</td></tr><tr><td>Female</td><td>342</td></tr><tr><td>Others</td><td>152</td></tr></table>'
width : 40, items : [{ icon : 'images/ignition_on.png', tooltip : 'Ignition On' }] }]}
The Main agenda of my tooltip is i want to display a grid column and values in columns,While user mouseover on tooltip i want to show the user

<table style='color:RED;font-weight: bold;'>
<td>Total Number of Unique Values:</td>

Total No of Unique Values:3
Male :200 Records
Female:100 Records
Others :10 Records

Is there any way i can achieve this in tooltip , if not possible how to achieve this?

Thanks in Advance,

This should work in Ext 3.x natively, if your string is properly escaped.
I see that you have some unescaped quotes that may be causing your problem?

xtype :'gridpanel',
columns :[{
xtype : 'actioncolumn',
header: '<img src="images/header.png" />',
tooltip:'<table style=\'color:RED;font-weight: bold;\'><tr><td>Total Number of Unique Values:</td><td>3</td></tr><tr><td>Male</td><td>200</td></tr><tr><td>Female</td><td>342</td></tr><tr><td>Others</td><td>152</td></tr></table>',
width : 40,
items : [{
icon : 'images/ignition_on.png',
tooltip : 'Ignition On'

The tooltips option doesn't allow for use of HTML, but you should be able to do this with a quicktip. Try throwing this in before your grid code:


UPDATE: Should have refreshed before posting.

The Way U suggested and i have tried is escaping the html tags inside that tooltip
for ex:'<table><tr><td>John</td></tr><tr><td>John</td></tr><tr><td>John</td></tr>'

its showing in tooltip as "JohnJohn"

Whats the Solution for this?

In the Version Ext 4.x and all its working perfect the way we intended.i.e its displying table

Sorry, I assumed that you were already using QuickTips. Try what Gary said.

@Gary-Schlosberg Without QuickTips initialized, wouldn't it just "render" the HTML as a regular browser tooltip (showing the actual HTML code)?

Yes, sorry for not being more clear. HTML in the regular tooltip would be rendered as text such as '<b>tooltip</b>'.
