1 Introduction

The Bootstrap Tooltip widget adds a tooltip to a user-defined field that contains help text or extra information.

1.1 Typical Usage Scenario

  • Add help text to an input field that is visible upon focus

2 Installation

To install, import the Bootstrap Tooltip widget into your app and add the widget on a page. Locate the widget as close to the target element as possible (preferably next to it).

When an element has a tooltip attached to it and needs to be conditionally visible, put both the element and the tooltip together in a container and apply the visibility conditions to the container instead of the element:
