I have a problem with the tooltip :
I have a fixed menu on the left of my webpage, so when I scroll the page scroll, not the menu,
If I set a tooltip attached to a menu item and I mousewheel when the cursor hovers the menu item, the menu sticks but the tooltip follow the scroll of the page, this is not pretty,

I haven't found anything to set the tooltip position fixed, is it possible?

Thanks a lot.

    Hi Christophe,

    I had the same problem when I used TipTip in a input field placed inside a div with style overflow:auto.

    I solved this problem with a small hack. I watch the scrollbar, when it changes, I hide the tooltip. See the code:


    $('#tiptip_holder').css('display', 'none');


    Note: "conteudo" is the div's id.

    Don't know if a menu control can be your help or not. I've got the menu start very quickly.
