Creating mouse hover info boxes for points

Question asked by cjachelski on Feb 23, 2015

I am new to coding in general and within ArcGIS. I am working on a project where I would like to have info boxes that appear when the mouse hovers over various points. I would like to output just the address and another field which are within the attribute table. Additionally, I would like to include a photo (this is for a history project showing images of what properties looked like in the 1900s from an old photo collection).


I have looked at the tutorials that ESRI offers (Show info window on mouse hover | ArcGIS API for JavaScript  and Load query results and show on hover | ArcGIS API for JavaScript ) and I'm having difficulty translating the code for my own data set and whether all of the code is needed.


Most importantly, I am confused about where in Arc I enter this code. I tried in the Python window, but wasn't sure how to apply it. Is there a module I can search for?


Any simplified help would be wonderful!
