Mouseover Button in ASP.net vb shows URL RRS feed

  • User-1977820137 posted


    I am using asp.net with vb. Created buttons in my ASPX but when I go over with the mouse IE shows the URL path in the bottom. I do not like that behavior.

    Is there a way that, when I go over a button with the mouse, the URL info is not displayed..

    If you are referring to the status bar on the bottom of the browser, chances are you will not be able to change it because of security concerns.

    Hi Jbon,

    You could use buttons of type button instead of submit (the default) and IE won't display any tool tip. There are few workarounds.

    <button id="btnCancel" type="button">Cancel</button>
    <input id="btnCancel" type="button" value="Cancel"></input>
    <a id="btnCancel" class="btn" href="#">Cancel</a>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function () {
            $("#btnCancel").click(function (e) {

    Best Regards,
