Create a Tooltip

Watch a video overview of the process:

To access a Tooltip option in the Apty Studio:

1.   Open the Apty Studio application and select the hosting application you plan to work with. The Apty Studio menu opens.

2.   Click on the Tooltips icon.

3.   The system will prompt you to create a Frame, unless it was created earlier. If the required Frame for this page was created earlier, select it from the list.
To learn how to create a Frame, refer to this article.

To create a Tooltip:

1.  On the Tooltips page click Create New Tooltip or the + (Plus) button at the top right corner of the screen. You are redirected to the Tooltip creator page.

2.  Click Select Spotlight. The control is now passed to the application page in the browser. Select the input field or another interactive element that is supposed to be validated.

3.  Compose your hint text. Tooltips may vary from simple one-line hints to a more complex instructions that may combine text, hyperlinks and images depending on the complexity of the task. The standard toolbar at the top of the text area allows adding text styles (bold, italic, heading, font, alignment).

The font can be defined for a given application globally at Admin Console > on the left side bar select application > Customization > User Interface. In the Typography field select a default content font for this application.

NOTE: If the toolbar at the top of the text area is invisible, click the text area and at the bottom right corner of the text area the T (Toggle Rich Text Editor) button appears, click it to access the styles toolbar.

4. Provide the name for your Tooltip element. It should be unique within the Frame it belongs to.

5.   Define icon position. Apty offers 12 predefined positions to locate the balloon around the field it belongs to. The preview of the position is available on the hosting application in the live mode.

6.  Icon offset: Allows setting up the proximity of a balloon to a field.

7. Click Save to start using a new Validation rule. It is now available as a part of a Frame in the Admin Console, but to make it active, it should be published.
