Bootstrap Tooltip

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

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

Let's take an example of tooltip:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Bootstrap Tooltip</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-secondary mt-5" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="top" title="Tooltip on top">
  Tooltip on top
</button>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
  $('[data-toggle="tooltip"]').tooltip();   
});
</script>
</div>
</body>
</html>
Output:

Tooltips everywhere

You can enable the tooltip everywhere to your page by adding data-toggle and data-placement to an element.

Let's take an example of tooltip everywhere:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Bootstrap Tooltip</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 mt-5">
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="top" title="Tooltip on top">
  Tooltip on top
</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="right" title="Tooltip on right">
  Tooltip on right
</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="bottom" title="Tooltip on bottom">
  Tooltip on bottom
</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="left" title="Tooltip on left">
  Tooltip on left
</button>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
  $('[data-toggle="tooltip"]').tooltip();   
});
</script>
</div>
</body>
</html>
