[Seaside] call a jQuery plugin

Hi -

I want to use this:


which is based on this:


I have my divs and css set up to use the cyOverlabel() function
described in the first link and if I enter $('body').cyOverlabel(); in
the firebug console, the labels appear inside the textInputs on my
form and disappear when clicked as expected.

How can I call the $('body).cyOverlabel(); bit from Seaside when a
form is rendered or at a more appropriate time/place?

"best" failed attempts are below

Thanks -


This doesn't work, but is my best guess so far and I've added it to the form:

(html jQuery this)
	onLoad: ((html jQuery this) do: 'cyOverlabel();').

I've also tried in the form:

     | id |
     id:= html nextId.
     html div id: id.
     html document addLoadScript: 'document.getElementById(' , id
printString , ').cyOverlabel()'.
