    We have the so called Hover Text in most of our fields. Did you check that? 


    Would you like to have, for example, a question mark beside the field, and if you click on it, a box will appear?

    Hello. Can the "entire form" pop-out and appear as a tool-tip, or certain sections only? Thanks.

    The hover text is a tool tip for specifics fields in the form.  It is possible to embed your JotForm on a web page as a pop-up. Please follow the steps below:

    1. Click on Publish button to access Publish wizard

    2. Now, click on Embed tab and then select Pop-up from the drop down

    3. Copy the displayed code to embed on your webpage.

    You may also embed the form as a lightbox form by following the guide below:

    Hello David,

    Thanks for the information, as it is definitely appreciated, especially from a tech novice as I am.


    Last question.


    So I create a form, and use the "embed" feature on pop-up to create the form as a tool-tip. Can the form / embedded text, be connected to a logo on a webpage, where when the logo is clicked, the jotform tool-tip pops up?


    The reason I ask is because I want to partner with other websites in the future, and I want to make it very easy for them to integrate my jotform into their platform, not taking up a lot of space and still have the jotform adopted for mobile devices.

    This is great software by the way and definitely thanks for integrating STRIPE.
