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” popup will display. We are going to learn how to create a tooltip and how to position the tooltip at different positions.

Step-by-step Guide to Implement Tooltip:

Step 1: Include all the bootstrap libraries in the head section of your code.

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/bootstrap@4.6.0/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css”> <script src=”https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.6.0.slim.js”></script> <script src=”https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/bootstrap@4.6.0/dist/js/bootstrap.min.js”>  </script> <script src=”https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/bootstrap@4.6.0/dist/js/bootstrap.bundle.min.js”>   </script>
 

Step 2: To implement the tooltip in the button control of HTML, apply data-toggle property as shown below:

<button type="button" data-toggle="tooltip" 
        data-placement="bottom" title="title of the button">
    Hover over me
</button> 

Step 3: To implement the tooltip in bootstrap, just follow the syntax in the script part of the code.

$(function(){
    $('[data-toggle="tooltip"]').tooltip();
})

Example 1: The following demonstrates the tooltip feature of bootstrap. This shows “top” and “bottom” tooltip.

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
  
    <link rel="stylesheet" href=
    </script>
    <script src=
    </script>
    <script src=
    </script>
  
    <script>
        $(function() {
            $('[data-toggle="tooltip"]').tooltip();
        });
    </script>
</head>
  
<body>
    <h2 style="color: green">GeeksforGeeks</h2>
    <p><b>Tooltip tutorial</b></p>
  
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-secondary" 
        data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="top" 
        title="This is top tooltip">
        Hover over me to see top tooltip
    </button>
    <br /><br />
  
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-secondary"
        data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="bottom" 
        title="This is bottom Tooltip">
        Hover over me to see bottom tooltip
    </button>
</body>
  
</html>

                    

Output:

Top Bottom tooltip

Example 2: Change the above code with the snippet given above for the bottom tooltip. You can also change the data-placement as left or right to place the tooltip place left and right respectively.

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
  
    <link rel="stylesheet" href=
    </script>
    <script src=
    </script>
    <script src=
    </script>
  
    <script>
        $(function() {
            $('[data-toggle="tooltip"]').tooltip();
        });
    </script>
  
    <style>
        .btn {
            margin: 10px;
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body>
    <h2 style="color: green">GeeksforGeeks</h2>
  
    <p><b>Tooltip tutorial</b></p>
  
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-secondary"
        data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="right" 
        title="This is right Tooltip">
        Hover over me to see RIGHT tooltip
    </button>
</body>
  
</html>

                    

Output:

Right tooltip

Conclusion: We have learned how to place the tooltip in any direction. You can use the same for links or div containers and the results will be the same.
