How to Access asp.net textbox tooltip via client side JavaScript

I am trying to change a tooltip on an asp.net (framework 2) textbox with out
a post back to the server. I can access many of the textbox properties and
change them but not the tooltip. Below is a code snippet of javascript that
works and the one tooltip "property" that does not.

Any ideas?

var a=document.getE lementById("txt ValMsg" + res.value.ID);

a.value=res.val ue.MsgValidator .Value;

a.style.visibil ity=res.value.M sgValidator.Vis able;

a.ForeColor=res .value.MsgValid ator.Color;

a.style.width=r es.value.MsgVal idator.Width;

debugger;

/*

* invalid property here, can't set tool tip.. help

*/

a.ToolTip="hell o world";

Thanks,

Well, it's right. The input type text does not have a "ToolTip" property.
What exactly are you trying to do?

AJAX enabled web page passes data back to server, server acts on data and
passes it back as an object that updates controls on web page including
textbox (using JavaScript to extract data and update controls). I am able
to update everything I need to on page except the tooltip. If I had access
to tooltip from JavaScript I could do this.

Thank,

AJAX is doing it's job. I understand that but the Input element of type text
does not have a ToolTip property therefore it will fail. The property to
change is Title not ToolTip.

The rendered HTML markup of a TextBox control is an Input element. To render
the ToolTip property the control assigns the Title property of the Input.
Therefore the Title property should be what AJAX is updating on the client.

In limiting textbox input to 500 characters I would like to include a dynamic count of characters input while the user is typing into a textbox. This would obviously be a client side control, possibly a custom validator with a function written in javascript. Has anyone done this? Does someone have an example? Regards

How do you hide an asp.net object and still be able to access it? I had my email in a session variable, but you can't access the session variable from Javascript (I don't think - since Javascript is Client and Session is Server). I tried using the email that was on the page, but it was surrounded by a Panel that had its visible property set to false - so anything inside of the Panel was not on the page.
