PDF Tooltips from HTML "title" Attribute

I want to http://businesssemantics.com/SBVRTerminologicalDictionary(2011-04-30-2045).htm from HTML to PDF. Does Apose do conversions in bulk or do you have to program every element in the HTML file for conversion to the PDF file?

You will notice in the source HTML document that on the nouns and some other colored words there is a mouse-over tooltip from the HTML “title” attribute containing the definition. Can Apose convert from HTML “title” attributes to PDF tooltips over the same text as the HTML file?

The tooltips are critical to our application (www.DesignsForManagement.com). I have a potential client that needs this function as soon as I can provide it.

As a fallback option I put the tooltip in the “title” attribte. I have done that onthe link on “advice of possibility” in the definition of the entry “advice of contingency” for testing purposes.

Can you tell me how to covert my HTML in a way that shows the HTML title tooltips in the PDF file. If you don’t have this feature, would you consider adding it.

Business Semantics Ltd is a start-up company and currently I am the only developer. The application is created in Visual Studio as a .Net application. It is deployed on Azure.

Hi Donald,


Thanks for your patience.

After further discussion with development team, the team has scheduled the issue PDFNEWNET-34867 for next month. As soon as we have some further updates regarding its resolution, we would be more than happy to update you with the status of correction. Please be patient and spare us little time.
I am currently evaluating Aspose.PDF component for my company and would like to know the status of this issue:

I am trying to convert html of the form:
Test
Test

But I do not seem to get rollover/tooltip affect after conversion using the Aspose.PDF but I see when I use Aspose.Word to convert this to Word and then use builtin conversion to PDF, I do get expected behavior.

Can you suggest the best way to reproduce the tooltip effect inside converted PDF file?

quick fix: I meant Test

Hi Kuna,

Thanks for using our API’s.

I have tested the scenario and have managed to reproduce the same problem that title attribute for anchor text is not being honored. For the sake of correction, I have separately logged it as PDFNEWNET-40383 in our issue tracking system. We will further look into the details of this problem and will keep you posted on the status of correction. Please be patient and spare us little time. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

May i know what fix was being worked on in the early part of this thread from 2013? Seems the original requester was asking about the same issue.


I am asking as I need to report back on the feasibility of using Aspose.PDF to my supervisor and this feature is quite important to us.

Basically my question is why hasn’t this been addressed since 2013? and how long do you foresee it taking from now on to be addressed?

BTW the issue is not restricted to anchor tags, it seems “title” attribute on any tag is not converted correctly.

Hi Kuna,


Thanks for sharing the details.

The issues are resolved based on their priority and number of users being impacted by certain problem. Since there have been only few incidents where customers have reported similar problem, so this problem is not yet resolved.

However your problem is reported under new issue ID and product team will surely consider fixing it as per their development schedule.

PS, the team will consider fixing the issue for all possible scenarios related to title attribute.

I think you misunderstood my question. I understand the process you take to fix bugs. What I need to do is report back to my supervisor on the best course ahead for us so I need to understand the history of this better.


Earlier in the thread, on 10-31-2013, 1:26 PM, ASPOSE staff member “Nayyer Shahbaz” said that the issue has been “… the team has scheduled the issue PDFNEWNET-34867 for next month”. I am curious as to what happened after that? If it was scheduled for fix about 3 years ago and never fixed, I want to know why so that I can set my expectations properly with my supervisor before purchasing this component.


Besides why is there a new tracking ID, wouldn’t it be better to add my request to the previous bug tracking ID so you can properly see how old the issue is and how many people have reported it?



Hi Kuna,


Thanks for sharing the details.

The earlier reported issue PDFNEWNET-34867 is related to HTML to PDF conversion based on legacy Aspose.Pdf.Generator namespace where contents of resultant PDF are garbled. As HTML to PDF conversion is quite complex scenario and the respective issue is blocked due to current limitations in API while rendering certain HTML tags inside PDF file, so the resolution of issue is taking much time. Though we planned to get the problem resolved quite earlier, but due to certain limitations in our API, its not yet resolved. Nevertheless, the team has been intimated and they are trying their level best to get this problem resolved, as quickly as possible.

Now concerning to the issue PDFNEWNET-40383 which is logged against your complaint, its related to Tooltip not properly rendering when converting HTML file to PDF format. As soon as we have made some progress towards the resolution of your problem, we will let you know.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as PDFNEWNET-34867) have been fixed in Aspose.Pdf for .NET 11.6.0.

Please provide a sample HTML and the code used to generate the PDF with tooltips. We have had no luck with reproducing expected behaviour with this update.


Thanks
