HTML Question

Show whole text on fixed cursor

I have created this

styled-select
, due to my requirements, and it is shown in the example below. Now if the options are longer than the frame, they won't be shown (which is what I require). I want some functionality in order to leave the cursor over any option and the whole text of that option is shown line an
info-box
.
I know that I should use
hover
but I could not remember the name of that functionality.

Working jsFiddle



$(function() {

$('.styled-select select').hide();
$("select#elem").val('0');

$('.styled-select div').each(function() {
var $container = $(this).closest('.styled-select');
$(this).html($container.find('select option:selected').text());
});

$('.styled-select div').click(function() {
var $container = $(this).closest('.styled-select');
var opLen = $container.find('select').children('option').length;
if (opLen < 5) {
$container.find('select').show().attr('size', opLen).focus();
} else {
$container.find('select').show().attr('size', 5).focus();
}
});

$('.styled-select select').click(function() {
var $container = $(this).closest('.styled-select');
var text = $container.find('select option:selected').text();
$container.find('div').html(text);
$container.find('select').hide();
});

$('.styled-select select').focusout(function() {
var $container = $(this).closest('.styled-select');
$container.find('select').hide();
});

});

Answer

Why don't you use the title attribute ?

<option title="This is a text long enough to go outside frame 08">

This is probably the easiest way.
