Bootstrap 5 Tooltip


The Tooltip component is small pop-up box that appears when the user moves the mouse pointer over an element:

How To Create a Tooltip

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

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

<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" data-bs-toggle="tooltip" title="Hooray!">Hover over me!</button>

Note: Tooltips must be initialized with JavaScript to work.

The following code will enable all tooltips in the document:


var tooltipTriggerList = [].slice.call(document.querySelectorAll('[data-bs-toggle="tooltip"]'))
var tooltipList = tooltipTriggerList.map(function (tooltipTriggerEl) {
  return new bootstrap.Tooltip(tooltipTriggerEl)

Positioning Tooltips

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

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


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