    HTMLElement.title

    The HTMLElement.title property represents the title of the element, the text usually displayed in a 'tool tip' popup when the mouse is over the displayed node.

    If a node does not have a title attribute, then the default action is to inherit it from its parent node, which in turn may inherit it from its parent node, etc.

     <div title="CoolTip">
       <div title="">mouse over here will popup "CoolTip"</div>
       <div title=" ">mouse over here will popup nothing"</div>
     </div>
    

    Syntax

    var str = element.title;
    element.title = str;
    

    Example

     button1.title = "click to refresh";
