Links and Tooltips
« on: July 06, 2009, 03:37:44 pm »

I have a small suggestion regarding hyperlinks and tooltips.

Currently, when you point at a link to a movie in a person's filmography, or at a actor in a movie's credits, PVD will display a pop-up tooltip with basic information on the movie or person (photo/poster, birthdate/year, etc.) But, it only does this for the hyperlinks within the movie credits or people filmographies. I would also like to see it work for "embedded" links (inserted with CTRL-H) within text fields such as Biography or Comments. For example, if Movie A's "Comments" field contains an embedded link of type "Name" pointing to Actor B, then hovering the mouse over that link should show a tooltip for Actor B.  At the very least, I'd like for this to work for links of type "Name", "Title", and "ID" (I realize most of the other link types are really nothing more than search filters).

Along the same lines, it would be nice if an embedded link of type "URL" would show a tooltip with the actual associated URL, so I can tell where it will take me if I click on it.
