Goto the field's definition (App design> open> Field). There is property Def . Whichever is selected that long name would appear as tool tip on the PIA.

Re: Tooltip text in Peoplesoft

Thats true, But it is constant. Let me explain my scenario, for example i have 10 numeric values each one has one description. when ever i move cursor on a particular value which supposed to show corresponding description.

try to have a html area and incorporate html script of alt. You need to do some manipulation and sync it. But it works. But for one object you have only one tool tip. Or you can have related display instead.

Karthik, unfortunately there isn't much flexibility when it comes to hover text in PeopleSoft. Aruna pretty much listed all what is possible!

Peoplesoft does not support Editbox mouseovers. However a sort of mouse over effect can be created by in Editbox using the help of PushButton object.
1) Select the Editbox for which you need mouseover
2) Take a screenshot using print screen and take out the field label. For example we are making AssessmentID label.
Save this as image object in peoplesoft.
3) Remove the label of the field from field properties.
4) Put a pushbutton where previous the field’s label use to come. Make pushbutton destination as Page Anchor (anything else will also do). Goto 2nd tab named label, Select pushbutton label type as image and select your image object(created in step2). Now the label text on left will act as a mouseover.

Now we have a pushbutton disguised as a field’s label and it has mouseover effect.

to change mouseovers for buttons on grid/acroll area goto its properties put text there(on left side of image)

Re: Tooltip text in Peoplesoft

Thanks for sharing your experience Amit. I will have to try this some time. Just so you know. PeopleTools 8.5 will support mouseovers :)

Re: Tooltip text in Peoplesoft

This can be achived as follows:

1. Firstly add one more Label to the Field if your tool-tip is different for the default label
2. Open the Record Field Properties -> and select the new label that is just been added and which you want to display as tool tip.
3. Open the Page Field Properties (it could be pushbutton/ hyperlink/ checkbox / editbox) and provide the Label that you have want to display as actual Label (other than tool tip)

Thanks, enjoy!

Re: Tooltip text in Peoplesoft

1. By default, the long-text of the default label gets picked up as the tooltip text
2. Recordname.Fieldname.hovertext="text" in page activate will do (As mentioned by Reva)
3. If the chosen object label and the hovertext is the same, the hovertext becomes blank. (One workaround in such a case is to append a space at the end of the hovertext in step 2 {e.g. Recordname.Fieldname.hovertext="text" | " "}
4. The tooltip text is what gets read out when using a screen reader like JAWS
