Multiple Tiptip shown at 1 time

Looking for a shove in the right direction regarding showing multiple tiptip at the same time. An example would be form validation. Once a field has been marked invalid. I want to have the tiptip show next to each invalid field. Is this possible in the current plugin? I assume that you can't do this based on how you have structured the tiptip to reuse the same single set of generated div's over and over.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Nevermind. I opened up the plugin and made some changes based on what I needed.

    I tossed you a tweet if you want the changes back.

    Here are some of the changes I made. Some you may or may not agree with

    I considered it a 1.3.5 type of release.
    * --------------------------------------------------------- * Moved the defaults declaration ourside of $fn.tipTip to allow for better controls of defaults * Allow for Multiple tool tips * Changed tiptip html stucture to utilize class declaration instead of relying on a singular ID * Changed how tiptip handles adding/removing class attributes and values switched to "addClass/removeClass" * Some nominal conditional logic performance improvements * Some nominal mathmatical performance improvements * * Version 1.3.5 - Updated: Nov. 13, 2010

    Would it be possible for you to provide me the code? I'm wanting to do the same thing - have multiple toolTips up at once

    Same question here - I want to do the same thing and it turns out it needs a bundle of changes, including to the CSS to work. If someone else has done it already, no need to re-invent the wheel.
