Is it possible to create a hoverpage for a table element?  Ultimate goal is to have a table display of something like Account.  If you hovered the mouse over the Account Id, the mini page layout would display for that specific accountId.

Hi a full popup could be difficult.

However, you can create a custom field renderer which creates JQuery UI tooltips that you can customize with html.

It should be something like this:

var field = arguments[0],    fieldValue = arguments[1],
    $ = skuid.$;
$(field).attr('title', generateTooltip());
function generateTooltip() {    var tooltip = '<div class="your-tooltip-content">Everything to display on hover, you can also add field values and model data in here</div>';
    return tooltip;
$('.field-with-tooltip').tooltip({    content: function () {
        return $(this).attr('title');
    html: true});

Maybe you could create another Skuidpage and embed an iFrame or maybe even use somehow a page include within that tooltip. But I'm not sure about that.
