    I'm not sure I understood your question, but based on your script I'm assuming you would like to populate the tooltip with the content of the <div id='twitterBox'>

    If that's so, just declare the following:

    var twHTML=$('#twitterBox').html();

    and in your tipTip call, set the twHTML variable to the content option as follows:

    $(".someClass").tipTip({maxWidth: "auto", edgeOffset: 10, content: twHTML});

    I guess what you meant by "I have enabled the content true in the JS" is that you have set the content to true which is not the case (check the API) since this option allows you to set a string (text including HTML tags) instead of the contents of the default title attribute.

    Anyway I hope I understood your problem and hope that solves it :)

    I've tried this, can't seem to get it to work. My javascript is as follows:

    var imgHTML=$('.imageBox').html();

    $(".someClass").tipTip({maxWidth: "auto", edgeOffset: 10, content: imgHTML});


    I have created a div class:

    .imageBox {



    And my html is as follows:
    <%= modelVals[(i*3)+j][1] %>

    <%= modelVals[(i*3)+j][1] %>

    The title appears, but I need the image from the hidden div tag to appear instaed.

    Can someone please help?

    I've tried this code to:


    var imgHTML = $(".imageBox").html();
    $(".someClass").tipTip({maxWidth: "auto", defaultPosition: "right", edgeOffset: 10, content: imgHTML}).removeAttr("title");


    This works only on the first link in the page, any other links just show the content of the first tipTip. It would appear its not refreshing the content.

    Any advice please?

    Ooops, reduced the code to:

    $(".someClass").tipTip({maxWidth: "auto", defaultPosition: "right", edgeOffset: 10, content: $(".imageBox").html()}).removeAttr("title");


    Still the content will not refresh.
