Bootstrap 4 | Tooltip

  • Last Updated : 30 Jul, 2021

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.
