Enable TipTip for dynamically created elements

Hello all,

first of all, I really like the TipTip plugin! Thanks for it!

But there is one problem.. When I create a new element via jQuery (doesnt matter if I insert the whole element as an HTML string via .html() or if I use document.createElement), TipTip will not work for that element.
I also tried to re-create TipTip with $(".tooltip").tipTip() or newElement.tipTip(), but this also does not work..

Could you please help me?

    You can use a function for this. I made it work in one of my projects like this. I created a function:

    function enableTipTip(selector){
                        delay: 100,

    Then in your ajax callback function or similar just call this function. Like this:

    $.post("mywebsite/action", {
                        data: data
                }, function(data){

    Being a total beginner at JS, could I perhaps get some directions on how to use this exactly? This is my code:

    jQuery(function($) {  
        function() {
        function() {
