i just tried it - didn't work for me (either in <select> or <option>)<BR><BR>but he may want to try some dhtml magic using an onMouseOver event<BR><BR>don't know if that'll work though
<option onmouseover="blah"><BR><BR>probably need to do in select mouseover and onmouseout which calls a function that checks the selected index for the appropriate tip and display accordingly.
if we put the onmouseover in the <select>, then if we hover over one of the option items, we're suddenly outside the <select> boundaries and the onmouseout event is fired<BR><BR>therefore, we can't get the selectedindex<BR><BR>i just don't think it can be done - at least not this way<BR><BR>what the heck does he want to do this for anyway?
Ohh i see what you mean if you have a multyline select right and only the top one is selected but want a tooltip for the second one?<BR><BR>Screw this he's not answering anyways. Besides with a good descriptive title next to the select and good titles for the options then problem solved.
