Tooltips are a quick way to provide extended information on a term or action on a page.

Building With HTML Classes

Tooltips work cross browser and cross platform and are easily added to a page with a simple markup and class structure. You can apply the has-tip class to any element.

By default, the tooltip takes the width of the element that it is applied to, but you can override this behavior by applying a data-width attribute to the target element. The tooltip takes on the content of the targets title attribute.

The tooltips can be positioned on the tip-bottom, which is the default position, tip-top, tip-left, or tip-right of the target element by adding the appropriate class to them. You can even add your own custom class to style each tip differently. On a small device, the tooltips are full width and bottom aligned.

Remember: This tooltips with external link are not working on touch devices.×

Available class options:
tip-top: Align the tip above the element you attach it to.
tip-bottom: Align the tip below the element you attach it to.
tip-left: Align the tip to the left the element you attach it to.
tip-right: Align the tip to the right the element you attach it to.
