While searching around I have seen plenty of examples where people query a database and use BlockUI to put up a wait message. When the ajax completes, unblock and display the results.
I'm trying to do something a little different. I would like to query a database and use the results as the message of the BlockUI 'window' - a custom popup.
(I tried using BeautyTip and it kinda works but I'm having trouble positioning the tip. Also, the tip only pops up on the second try because I'm actually assigning the ".bt" after the ajax completion. Any clues there?) OK, that's off-topic.
Is this just a retarded way of doing this? Basically I have an old school area map with rollover info coming from a db.
