Tooltips not displayed

Tooltips not displayed

Post by Christer Lin » Wed, 15 Aug 2001 21:04:03



After installing something or another, or fiddling on some setting
somewhere, my Internet Explorer 5.5 (Win2000) does not show any
tooltips anymore!  I just upgraded to SP2 but they're still gone.

Tooltips are not displayed on toolbar buttons, nor or links with TITLE
or images with ALT or TITLE. Very frustrating!  Tooltips seems to work
in other programs though.

Does anyone know how I can turn them on again?

 
 
 

Tooltips not displayed

Here's two things to try:
1. Go to the Advanced tab of Internet Options. Check "Always Expand Alt Text
For Images"
2. Go to the View tab of Folder Options. Check "Show Pop-up Description..."

1. Apache/Tomcat - Images are not displayed, links do not display pages

Problem: Images are not displayed, links do not display pages
OS     : WinXP
Tomcat : jakarta-tomcat-4.1.18
Apache : apache_2.0.44-win32
mod_jk : mod_jk-2.0.43.dll
browser: IE and NN both show the problems

URL used: http://localhost/EX_4_13/iceCreamReq.html

Tomcat listens on port 8080
Apache listens on port 80

Q: Could someone please tell me if I am setting up files correctly?
I have some html files on the Apache side and some on the Tomcat side.
Mu understanding is the I should have the initial file (start point)
on the apache side and any files that it refers from that point on
should be on the Tomcat side.

Tomcat:

In the server.xml file:

  <Context path="/TOM_BHTExample" docBase="TOM_BHTExample" />

i.e. I have created a directory webapps\TOM_BHTExample
My goal was to have all of the jsp pages, appropriate html pages, all
gif, etc. reside, as appropriate under their own subdirectories, etc.
under TOM_BHTExample.

I have directory TOM_BHTExample\EX_4_13 that contains the various gif
files and jsp and html files e.g.
  iceCreamPoll.jsp
  pollVote.jsp
  sample.html
  Banana.gif, ....

Q: Should I have any html pages here in this directory? I have a link
on the resulting page, referring to sample.html and when I click on
the link the page does not appear.

I get
The page cannot be found
error message from the IE and
The requested URL /TOM_BHTExample/EX_4_13/sample.html was not found on
this server
error message from NN.

Apache:

In the httpd.conf file:

DocumentRoot "J:/APACHE/apache_2.0.44-win32/Apache2/htdocs/APA_BHT_EXAMPLE"

I have a directory APA_BHT_EXAMPLE\EX_4_13 that contains
iceCreamReq.html

The iceCreamReq.html file contains a line:
  <form action="/TOM_BHTExample/EX_4_13/iceCreamPoll.jsp"
method="get">

The iceCreamPoll.jsp contains a line:
  <form action="pollVote.jsp" method="POST">

The pollVote.jsp file contains line e.g.:
  <img src="Banana.gif" height="20" width="69" alt="Banana" />
  <a href="sample.html">sample.</a>

Q: The pollVote.jsp when displayed on the browser does not show any
images and when I click on the link the page does not get displayed
either.

If I go through only Tomcat as the server then all works well.
http://localhost:8080/TOM_BHTExample/EX_4_13/iceCreamReq.html
