I deployed a CDF file in a web page. I used both Mouseover and Tooltip functions. They both work in the raw CDF file. The Mouseover function works but the Tooltip function does not work in the web deployed version.

Is there something else that has to be done to make this work? or does Tooltip just not work on the web-deployed CDFs?

projecttext = "Projects are initiated by ...";

project = {Mouseover["Project", {Text[projecttext]} // TableForm]} // 

combineddollarstext = "Combines the values from ...";

combineddollars = {Mouseover["Combined Dollars", 
                   {Text[combineddollarstext]} // TableForm]} //TableForm

measures = FlipView[{"Measures", 
                    {combineddollars, "reportedexpendituredollars", 
                     "grantobligationdata"} //TableForm}]

timeframe = {Tooltip["Year", "Projects are measured within Fiscal Years."]} //TableForm

LayeredGraphPlot[{project -> timeframe, timeframe -> measures, 
     measures -> "Compare", "Compare" -> "Filter"}, VertexLabeling -> True]

It works for me. How did you deploy? (Win7-64, Mathematica v9.01) – Sjoerd C. de Vries Mar 29 '13 at 16:29
why not show us the web address where the malfunctioning .cdf lives? – bill s Mar 29 '13 at 17:09
I used Mathematica v9.0.0.0. I deployed it locally on a MAC. I will try to put it up on a site later or tomorrow. Have not used this forum before and don't see a way to attach a file. Jeff – Jeff Lapides Mar 29 '13 at 20:24
Don't use v9.0.0.0. It is buggy. Update to v9.0.1.0 – Rolf Mertig Mar 29 '13 at 22:02
Using v9.0.1, Windows, this works just fine for me – Rolf Mertig Mar 29 '13 at 22:20

Wolfram has confirmed that this is a bug. They are working to repair it.
