How To Create a Tooltip

To create a tooltip, add the data-toggle="tooltip" attribute to an element.

Use the title attribute to specify the text that should be displayed inside the tooltip:

<a href="#" data-toggle="tooltip" title="Hooray!">Hover over me</a>

Note: Tooltips must be initialized with jQuery: select the specified element and call the tooltip() method.

Positioning Tooltips

By default, the tooltip will appear on top of the element.

Use the data-placement attribute to set the position of the tooltip on top, bottom, left or the right side of the element:


<a href="#" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="top" title="Hooray!">Hover</a>
<a href="#" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="bottom" title="Hooray!">Hover</a>
<a href="#" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="left" title="Hooray!">Hover</a>
<a href="#" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="right" title="Hooray!">Hover</a>
