Bootstrap 4 | Tooltip
  • Last Updated : 31 May, 2019

A Tooltip is used to provide interactive textual hints to the user about the element when the mouse pointer moves over. For Example, in the below image GeeksForGeeks is a button and when the user mouse moves over it, the additional information “A computer Science Portal” pops-up will display. Tooltip is quite useful for displaying the description of different elements in the webpage.

Create tooltip: The data-toggle=”tooltip” attribute is used to create a tooltip. The title attribute is used to specify the text that should be displayed inside the tooltip.

Example:




<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html lang="en"
<head
    <title>Tooltip</title
      
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  
    <link rel="stylesheet" href=
      
    <script src=
    </script>
      
    <script src=
    </script>
      
    <script src=
    </script>
</head
  
<body style="text-align:center;"
      
    <div class="container">
          
        <h1 style="color:green;" data-toggle="tooltip" title="Tooltip">
            GeeksforGeeks
        </h1
    </div>
      
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $('[data-toggle="tooltip"]').tooltip();   
        });
    </script>
</body
  
</html>                    

Output:

Positioning Tooltips: The data-placement attribute is used to set the position of tooltip attribute. The tooltip element can be displayed on the top, left, right or bottom side of the element.



Example:




<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html lang="en"
<head
    <title>Tooltip</title
      
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  
    <link rel="stylesheet" href=
      
    <script src=
    </script>
      
    <script src=
    </script>
      
    <script src=
    </script>
</head
  
<body style="text-align:center;"
      
    <div class="container">
          
        <h1 style="color:green;">
            GeeksforGeeks
        </h1
          
        <h2>Positioning Tooltip</h2>
          
        <button data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="top"
                title="Top tooltip">Top</button>
                  
        <button data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="bottom"
                title="Bottom tooltip">Bottom</button>
                  
        <button data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="left"
                title="Left tooltip">Left</button>
                  
        <button data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="right"
                title="Right tooltip">Right</button>
    </div>
      
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $('[data-toggle="tooltip"]').tooltip();   
        });
    </script>
</body
  
</html>
