Hints 14.11.2018 00:37

Hello!
How can I add hints for entering values into fields in a table?
Thank!

Re: Hints 14.11.2018 11:28

Hello,

At this time there is no way to add it in configuration as add form is generated, but you can use css to add content this way:

#tmaddform fieldset:nth-child(1) label::after {
content: "Your content";
float: right;
}

where you can set the field referred changing the number of fieldset child "nth-child(1)" and adding your 'hint' text to each field as content.

Hope this helps. Regards,

Thanks for the answer!

Please tell me the path and file to insert the code. I could not find it.

Hi,

You can add it inside component css (JOOMLA/components/com_mstablemanager/assets/css/mstablemanager.css) or in any css loaded in that page. You can check css loaded at your site using 'Developer tools(F12)' or 'View Source Code' option in your browser.

Thank!
Code in mstablemanager.css has been added, but what to do next did not understand. Could you tell me step by step my actions?

Hi,

Ok, if you localize the css file you should only add as many hint as you need duplicate this code and changing the number on 'nth-child' and the content as needed:

#tmaddform fieldset:nth-child(1) label::after {
content: "Your content";
float: right;
}

where you can set the field referred changing the number of fieldset child "nth-child(1)" and adding your 'hint' text to each field as content.

Thanks for the answer.

But I do not understand the part "where you can set the field ..."

Re: Hints 17.11.2018 09:47

Hi,
this means that block of code is an example for one field (the first one). In order to add different hints for other fields, you should duplicate this block, just changing the number, and the text.

Hope this helps, regards

Unfortunately there is no result, hints are not visible.

Hi,
tried here and the solution works pretty well, so as a first step we suggest to check with your template developer how to properly add the new style in a way it works with your template and/or any other components that may add different css. If you can't get it working for your site you could also ask for a custom version of the component, adding new backend option to introduce texts, defining your custom way to show the hint (text, icon with tooltip..etc). If you are interested in getting a quote you can use the private helpdesk and provide your requirements.
