A Simple Tooltip with Images and Text

As a web programmer we need to show tool tip often in our pages but not in an old fashioned way. Something appealing and subtle to the page layout design.

Mostly we go for available open source scripts which are free. I were also doing the same until I decided to write a simple one when I were in need of customizing a free snippet, which took more time.

Writing a tool tip is quite simple

This is a a simple Tooltip for you web pages with minimal code. Images , Text and HTML code can be shown inside the tooltip

Get Available Width and Height excluding your toolbars

Often we come across problems with the available screen area with different screen resolutions. The major problem is with the toolbars, somebody having the default toolbars of the browsers, and some buddy will have more toolbars installed, like Google , Y! etc. And even some users will have the taskbar twice the height of the default height for showing the quick launch bar, custom toolbars in the task bar, more tray icons.

The Problem is to find the available screen space excluding the toolbars in different resolutions. Here is a simple way of doing this.
First we find the resolution and then the available real estate/space for showing our stuff. The following function will do that.

 function init(){
var screenH = screen.height;
    var screenW = screen.width;
    alert("Your Screen Resolution:n" + screenW + "px x " + screenH + "px");
        availW = document.body.clientWidth;
        availH = document.body.clientHeight;
        availW = innerWidth; availH = innerHeight;
    alert("Available Space exculing the Toolbars:n" + availW + "px + x " + availH + "px"); } 

WordPress 2.0.7 Released

WordPress 2.0.7 has been released. The major focus of this release was a new security patch under certain versions of PHP with register_globals turned on, plus a fix in Conditional GET support under certain combinations of IIS/PHPCGI versions (AKA the “Feedburner bug”). There are a few other minor bugfixes in there, as well.
