Tooltip Magic includes powerful features that leave other tooltip widgets in the dust. Use them to provide additional information or context that pops up in an attractive box when users mouse over or click on text or images. Tooltips can contain any type of content you wish to display—including paragraphs, tables, DIVs, forms, links, or images. Use PVII Tooltips to display an element's title attribute, HTML forms or search boxes, image Alt text, marketing Images, or to display other PVII widgets. Tooltips can even be used as dropdown or popup menus

Tooltip Magic is a Dreamweaver Extension and works in Dreamweaver MX through Dreamweaver CS6 (and up).

This tooltip uses the new Center in Window option. The box is automatically centered both horizontally and vertically in your window. This option can work well when combined with the Open on Page Load option to pop up an important message on first entering your page.
