jQuery UI keep tooltip open for debugging (to style it)

I'm trying to style the jQuery UI tooltip but it keeps closing. I've tried the following with no success:

$("td label").tooltip({

disabled: true,
close: function (event, ui) { return false; }

}).on("click", function () {

}).off('focusout mouseleave mouseenter');

Nothing seems to keep it open. When I right click on it to go to Firebug, it vanishes before I have a chance.


Call the open method on your tooltips, that will make them stay opened

$("td label").tooltip().tooltip("open");
