Create Pop-Up Hints with PHP

Use the overLIB library to pop up hints for words on your web page using JavaScript and PHP.

With the overLIB JavaScript library , you can have handy pop-up labels that appear above text on your page. This hack makes it a little easier to create these links by providing a PHP wrapper function to invoke the library.

Complete Code

Save the code shown as pop-up.php.

A wrapper function that simplifies overLIB use, courtesy of PHP

function popup( $text, $popup )
<a href="javascript:void(0);" onmouseover="return overlib('<?php echo($popup); ?>
');" onmouseout="return nd();"><?php echo($text); ?></a>
<script type="text/javascript" src="overlib/overlib.js"><!-- overLIB (c) Erik Bosrup -->
<div id="overDiv" style="position:absolute; visibility:hidden; z-index:1000;">
With PHP, we can combine with some javascript to make small popups. <br />Just hover your mouse on <?php popup(
'me', 'And this is The Hover Text.<br/>Looking Wonderfull ha?.'
); ?>. It's work ^_*.

You could also put the wrapper function into a PHP library, include that library in your PHP pages, and turn this into a nice, reusable utility function.

Test Your Code

Download and unpack the overLIB library into your web server’s documents directory. Then add in the pop-up.php file and test it on your browser, You should see something similar
