Jim,

The display end of gadgets is basically an HTML web page that you see in your browser every day. You should able to add a "title" to the input field and that will become the tooltip. For example:

Code: Select all

<input title="Project name is a very fancy name...of course..." type="text" class="h2"
id="Project.ProjectName" size="50" maxlength="50">
Whether these can be added in the same way to check boxes or radio buttons I'm not sure. If so, you'd probably have to hover over the check box to get the tip to appear.

Thanks Steven! I got it working. I have been trying to make a tool-tip using on hover event and JavaScript with no luck.
Thanks,
Jim

Hello All,

I have updated the code to add tool tips for the menus. Place the mouse pointer over the item label and a tool tip will be displayed just under the item label (see below).

This Version: 2.0

Supports: 11.0 and up

Install:
1. Download the gadget EasyTrayMaker.zip that is attached to this post.
2. Rename it from EasyTrayMaker.zip to EasyTrayMaker.vgadget
3. In Vectric Pro or Aspire click on Gadgets -> Install Gadget and navigate to where you downloaded the file to, select it and click OK.

It should give you a pop up saying the gadget was installed and you should see EasyTrayMaker in the Gadgets menu.

Please let me know this works and I will add tool tips to the other Easy Gadgets.

P.S. Thanks Steven for the HTML labeling.

Wow! That is a terrific enhancement!!!

Nice enhancement but I would recommend shortening them some! Example: It is understood an entry is to be made in input boxes --- omit the words "enter the" for it is not really needed.

Just a thought/opinion!!!

Hi Sharkcutup, that is a good suggestion, I will get started on this. Do you want to do the early reviewing?
Thanks,
Jim

Howdy Jim,

This is an OUTSTANDING gadget! Wish I'd know about your gadget a few days ago, I needed a drawer to mount under my workbench, and I attempted to use the box creator gadget. it didn't work very well. I have a Stepcraft M.1000, and its X axis is smaller than its Y axis. So, in Vcarve Pro, I set my job dimensions to width (X) 24 inches and height (Y) 96 inches. The box creator gadget doesn't like that - it gives me a "couldn't arrange quick enough" error. I determined that gadget will not orient the long dimension sides vertically on a job, like your gadget does.

Thank you for this gadget! :-)

Hi Jim,

Thank you for making this gadget. I have tried to install it as you said, but I cannot change the zip file to EasyTrayMaker.vgadget, Downloads shows the file as you asked to change it to, but it just opens the file and there nothing else happens. Please help.

Thank you,

Linda

Linda,

See the second “note” under installation instructions at this link. I believe Windows is hiding the file extension on you.
