How can I delay the Hover Popups in the AJAX Web-GUI of PRTG 8?



I feel that having pop-ups occur whenever I leave my cursor over a sensor for more than a few seconds is annoying and obtrusive.

Can I change the delay before these popups will be shown?

You can change the delay time (default is 1500 milliseconds) by adding one line of Javascript code to the custom javavscript file.

Find the file customerscripts.js in the folder \prtg network monitor\website\javascript.

Note: All Javascript commands in this file will be added to the end of PRTG's Javascript file and changes to this file will not be overwritten when installing updates of PRTG.

Open the file in a text editor and add the following line of code (in a default installation the file is empty):

$.fn.ptip.defaultOptions.delayShow = 5000;

This will set the delay to 5 seconds. You can increase the value up to 60000 (1 minute).
