Thumbnail Tooltip Demo

Frequent contributor to the tutorial forum, Collin Fagan, has created a new demo that combines bits of other tutorial demos plus some interesting new functionality.

ThumbnailTooltipDemo features a tabbed pane containing three tabs. The first tab shows a tree, the second a table, and the third contains a grid of images. What's interesting here is that when you hover the mouse over one of the tabs, you see a pictorial tooltip representing the contents of that tab. The tooltip is dynamically generated, so if the appearance of the pane changes, by highlighting text, for example, that change is reflected in the tooltip.

You can see the forum thread or check out the wiki page with the source code.

Very cool, Collin!
