Tooltip: Displaying tooltips on select elements and items

Reported by: slolife Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: none
Component: ui.tooltip Version: 1.9.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Create various <select> lists with <option title="x"> items and apply tooltips to the option elements.


The tooltip that appears for each option element on hover in <select multiple> is displayed toward the top of the page, rather than next to the option item.


<select multiple> works great, but <select> dropdown hides the tooltip for the first few items.

IE9: Displays the tooltip for the parent, but doesn't display any item tooltips.

See for an IE specific bug.

@slolife Thanks for the nice test case.

Chrome: I can confirm the issue with the tooltip position on <select> multiple in Chrome. It also happens in Safari.

Firefox: I see this one as well. WebKit browsers are displaying the native tooltip for <option> elements instead of the jQuery UI one. Opera doesn't support the title attribute on <option> elements natively.

IE: That should be covered by #8798.
