First attempt at using Validation Tooltips

Just had my first go playing with this new extension.

Installation and serial entered as normal and with no problems.
Icon appears in Webassist Toolbar and an entry appears in the Webassist menu.

When I tried opening the extension in a new php page I got a warning box stating that no spry validation was found on the page which then gave me the option to cancel or continue anyway. I chose to cancel as I didnt see the point in adding the tooltips just yet. Not really sure why you would want too...

The three menus seemed easy to navigate and straight forward.

There was a white panel at the bottom of the window that didn't display any content which I thought was odd.

I uploaded the page and the validation tooltip directory and all worked as expected.

I wasnt sure how to edit the tooltips and clicked in various places expecting an edit button to appear in the property inspector (as with some of the other extensions) but found that it was easier by just pressing the icon in the toolbar.

This time, the white panel gave me a preview of the tooltips which was invaluable.

This time I edited a preset and saved it as my own which worked well and with no problems.

There are only a few things that I would like to see considered;

The close x on the tooltip appeared too far left on my test rather than where it was shown on the preview (images attached)

It would be good to have an option to have a close button or not to have one maybe by having a check box under one of the tabs.

It would be good to have an option to choose which font you want the close button in (I would prefer an Arial type font)

It would be good to have the option to use a graphic instead of a text close button (red cross or similar as a default option) with the ability to use your own.

All in all easy to use and worked as expected with perhaps a little to feedback over a close button...
