"Mouse over"-comment

Good morning,

i have an input field that i would like to display a small popup comment when the mouse cursor is positioned over the field, or maybe put a small question mark button behind the field with this ‘comment when mouse over button’ behaviour.

As this is a very common feature in input forms, i was astonished not to find something relevant in the vaddin UI framework, or didn’t i look close enough ?


Aren’t tooltips what you are looking for ?


Beyond that - and to my knowledge - no, there is currently nothing else like that in Vaadin.



Tooltips are indeed a good solution; how could i miss them ?

Thanks, Charles
