    Hover effect on text field flickers

    Asked by markashton on March 04, 2011 at 02:43 PM



    If one applies hover to a text field you will notice that the field element itself does not exhibit mouse-over behaviour whereas with dropdown - the field element itself does have mouse over behaviour.

    Please see example here: http://www.jotform.com/form/10622921298

    Could I suggest that text box and text area exhibit mouse-over behaviour - much smoother and user-friendly

    I looked at your sample form and it seemed OK with me. Both tool tip hints did not flicker at all.

    Can you give us more details on what browser you used?

    Yes it is fine in IE8, Firefox & Safari


    Please have a look in Chrome - you will notice a difference in behaviour on mouse-over

    Also - Opera has a problem with positioning of hover elements - massively off. Try it in that

    This problem seems to be resolved now. Apparently, it was a Chrome bug and they fixed it.
