Bootstrap Popover

A Bootstrap popover is used to provide small pop-up box. When the user on click mouse pointer over the text then pop-ups will display and provide some textual hints. For this, add data-toggle="popover" and data-placement attribute to an element.

For creating tooltip, you must include the library popper.js for positioning.

Let's take an example of popover:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Bootstrap Popover</title>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.4.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.4.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/popper.js/1.16.0/umd/popper.min.js"></script>
  <script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.4.1/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<div class="container">
<button type="button" class="btn btn-lg btn-primary" data-toggle="popover" title="Popover" data-content="Hello, i'm popover">Click me for pop-up</button>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
  $('[data-toggle="popover"]').popover();   
});
</script>
</div>
</body>
</html>
Output:
