mb.Balloon, a clever and helpful javascript tooltip solution

Working on the Twproject Application User Interface we at Open Lab  were looking for a component that would had the capability to display a little box near a target element with a variety of customizable interfaces and behaviours.

I started Working on that problem and at the end this jQuery component came out. It’s simple but clever; it define its position based on the target object position and trying to get as closer as possible to the center of the screen.

It can be displayed either on the click or the mouse over event; it can have a delay, an overlay, a timer and so on.

You can see an example here:

It’s still a Beta version and I should write the documentation yet but you can test it downloading it from gitHub.


Any feedback will be appreciated.
