Multiple tooltips are shown

jquery-ui tooltips open on mouseover and focus events. So, it's possible to hover over a field and focus a different one. That results in two tooltips that are opened at the same time.

IMHO, when a new tooltip is about to be opened it should close the one that is already displayed.

I retested it with jquery-ui 1.10.3 with the same result.

This is by design.

What is the best way to turn it off, i.e. show only the most recent tooltip?

You can track the tooltips yourself and close any open ones, but it's potentially bad UX. If a user focuses a field, then moves their mouse and happens to trigger another tooltip, closing the tooltip for the focused field is not the desired behavior. If you need help with this, please use the forums or Stack Overflow.
