I have a imagemap with various tags, it works well in my Drupal instance, I can click on the various areas to get to my pages.

Now I want to hover one area and display a tooltip with information inside (example: if I hover France, I will have a tooltip showing little information on Paris, with a picture). I will find myself how to do it by the way if you can't help with it - that's just my final goal.

Following various sites tutorials, I made a View with contextual filters in order to display the city content by passing an argument to the view. It works like a charm. I also rewrote the output to use tokens for display

I have actually no idea how to display my View in a tooltip - and searching didn't help me either ...

Modules I am using :

  • Views
  • Tipsy (or qTip or else, I don't have any preferences, as long as it works)
  • It is not possible to show the whole view in a tooltip

  • You can display the view fields in tool tip, but not the whole views.

You can easily use replacement patterns to achieve something similar. Add the fields you would want as the view and then in replacement pattern you can render a views block or even customize the display via html.
