Tooltips in inputfield labels


We are currently using a common design pattern.

Having a tooltip behind the lable of an inputfield.

It would be nice to make the plugable tooltip widget be able to put the trigger behind the label.

or have the input fields have tooltips themselves.

this is how we currently do this, but this is not a very scalable solution.



this also breaks the accesability because the label and input fields are no longer connected.

@jason: does that make sense? Would it also be better to rephrase the idea that way and get more votes? What do you think?


Think it’s not just tooltips. it could also be X characters left… or ‘required’ or basically anything you can come up with. So I would say: the concept should be more freedom in how you build your ‘form-group’ in an accessible way.
