"I" - Help Text next to fields

Hi Guys

I have been asked by a client to add the “i” into custom fields to explain what data is relevant for the fields

In studio there is “Help Text & Comment Text” but these only seem to be relevant to studio?

Am I missing something that is already available in SuiteCRM?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Documentation found in https://support.sugarcrm.com/Documentation/Sugar_Versions/6.5/CE/Administration_Guide/Developer_Tools/#Studio

Basically, in studio you have the “help” box that serves as the “i” that you want, users need to put their cursos over the filed to view this information.

best regards

Hi there
Thanks for your response :slight_smile:

I have just tested this and no “i” appears near the field for an admin user, this only stays inside studio?

To confirm, I would like “Regular Users” to be able to see the “i” and help text when they are creating & editing records

Thanks again

i see the “hover over”


Where is the “hover over” option?

I have managed to create an ‘i’ for a field in detail view by adding to vardefs :eg. $dictionary[‘AOS_Quotes’][‘fields’][‘description’][‘popupHelp’]=‘Enter…asdf… etc’;

But i have to click the ‘i’ - can i implement a tool-tip type feature with a “hover over” option?

‘Help text’ and ‘comment text’ only seem to have any use in studio for me.

thank you

Hi Taufique.

I just figured out how to disable the admin check for this functionality

you need to edit <Suite_DIR>/modules/Users/UserViewHelper.php

go to line 527
you will find

        if($this->is_current_admin || $controller->get_users_can_edit()) {
            $chooser->display_hide_tabs = true;
        } else {
            $chooser->display_hide_tabs = false;

replace this with

$chooser->display_hide_tabs = true;
