    Tooltip on specific calendar dates?

    Asked by KeysDiver on June 26, 2014 at 09:52 AM


    How can I go about setting up a calendar with tooltips on specific days of the week?

    For example:

    We offer Open Water courses on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. If they select any other day of the week, I would love that a tooltip displays that reads, "You have selected a date outside of our regular class schedule: private instruction is available for an additional fee of $200 per day."

    Is this possible? I have not yet created a dedicated form for this class booking yet.


    Thank you!

    Hello KeysDiver,

    Though it is not possible to show the message in a tooltip, but you can show the message in a regular "Text" field. You can take advantage of our "Is Equal To Day Condition" feature to get the day of the selected date and then show / hide the "Text" field accordingly.

    Here are the steps you should follow:

    1. Add a "Text" field in your form.

    2. Add date field in your form.

    3. Add condition to check the day of the selected date and show / hide "Text" field. Please check the screenshot below:

    Please take a look at the following demo form which I created:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41763977575977? Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
