Add a tooltip to a div

I have a div tag like this:

<div>
  <label>Name</label>
  <input type="text"/>
</div>

How can I displaying a tooltip on :hover of the div, preferably with a fade in/out effect.

Answer

For the basic tooltip, you want:

<div title="This is my tooltip">

For a fancier javascript version, you can look into:

https://jqueryhouse.com/best-jquery-tooltip-plugins/

The above link gives you 25 options for tooltips.

Answer

It can be done with CSS only, no javascript at all : running demo

  1. Apply a custom HTML attribute, eg. data-tooltip="bla bla" to your object (div or whatever):

    <div data-tooltip="bla bla">
        something here
    </div>
    
  2. Define the :before pseudoelement of each [data-tooltip] object to be transparent, absolutely positioned and with data-tooltip="" value as content:

    [data-tooltip]:before {            
        position : absolute;
         content : attr(data-tooltip);
         opacity : 0;
    }
    
  3. Define :hover:before hovering state of each [data-tooltip] to make it visible:

    [data-tooltip]:hover:before {        
        opacity : 1;
    }
    
  4. Apply your styles (color, size, position etc) to the tooltip object; end of the story.

In the demo I've defined another rule to specify if the tooltip must disappear when hovering over it but outside of the parent, with another custom attribute, data-tooltip-persistent, and a simple rule:

[data-tooltip]:not([data-tooltip-persistent]):before {
    pointer-events: none;
}

Note 1: The browser coverage for this is very wide, but consider using a javascript fallback (if needed) for old IE.

Note 2: an enhancement might be adding a bit of javascript to calculate the mouse position and add it to the pseudo elements, by changing a class applied to it.

Answer

I did something that should be able to be adapted to a div as well.

HTML

<td>
    <%# (Eval("Name").ToString().Length > 65) ? Eval("Name").ToString().Substring(0, 60) + "..." : Eval("Name")%>
    <span class="showonhover">
        <a href="#"><%# (Eval("Name").ToString().Length > 65) ? "More" : "" %></a>
        <span class="hovertext">
            <%# Eval("Name") %>
        </span>
    </span>
</td>

CSS

.showonhover .hovertext { display: none;}
.showonhover:hover .hovertext {display: inline;}
a.viewdescription {color:#999;}
a.viewdescription:hover {background-color:#999; color: White;}
.hovertext {position:absolute;z-index:1000;border:1px solid #ffd971;background-color:#fffdce;padding:11px;width:150px;font-size: 0.75em;}

A simple Formatted ToolTip text on hover

Answer

Okay, here's all of your bounty requirements met:

  • No jQuery
  • Instant appearing
  • No dissapearing until the mouse leaves the area
  • Fade in/out effect incorporated
  • And lastly.. simple solution

Here's a demo and link to my code (JSFiddle)

Here are the features that I've incorporated into this purely JS, CSS and HTML5 fiddle:

  • You can set the speed of the fade.
  • You can set the text of the tooltip with a simple variable.

HTML:

<div id="wrapper">
    <div id="a">Hover over this div to see a cool tool tip!</div>
</div>

CSS:

#a{
    background-color:yellow;
    padding:10px;
    border:2px solid red;    
}

.tooltip{
    background:black;
    color:white;
    padding:5px;
    box-shadow:0 0 10px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 1);
    border-radius:10px;
    opacity:0;
}

JavaScript:

var div = document.getElementById('wrapper');
var a = document.getElementById("a");
var fadeSpeed = 25; // a value between 1 and 1000 where 1000 will take 10
                    // seconds to fade in and out and 1 will take 0.01 sec.
var tipMessage = "The content of the tooltip...";

var showTip = function(){    
    var tip = document.createElement("span");
    tip.className = "tooltip";
    tip.id = "tip";
    tip.innerHTML = tipMessage;
    div.appendChild(tip);
    tip.style.opacity="0"; // to start with...
    var intId = setInterval(function(){
        newOpacity = parseFloat(tip.style.opacity)+0.1;
        tip.style.opacity = newOpacity.toString();
        if(tip.style.opacity == "1"){
            clearInterval(intId);
        }
    }, fadeSpeed);
};
var hideTip = function(){
    var tip = document.getElementById("tip");
    var intId = setInterval(function(){
        newOpacity = parseFloat(tip.style.opacity)-0.1;
        tip.style.opacity = newOpacity.toString();
        if(tip.style.opacity == "0"){
            clearInterval(intId);
            tip.remove();
        }
    }, fadeSpeed);
    tip.remove();
};

a.addEventListener("mouseover", showTip, false);
a.addEventListener("mouseout", hideTip, false);
Answer

You can create custom CSS tooltips using a data attribute, pseudo elements and content: attr() eg.

http://jsfiddle.net/clintioo/gLeydk0k/11/

<div data-tooltip="This is my tooltip">
    <label>Name</label>
    <input type="text" />
</div>

.

div:hover:before {
    content: attr(data-tooltip);
    position: absolute;
    padding: 5px 10px;
    margin: -3px 0 0 180px;
    background: orange;
    color: white;
    border-radius: 3px;
}

div:hover:after {
    content: '';
    position: absolute;
    margin: 6px 0 0 3px;
    width: 0;
    height: 0;
    border-top: 5px solid transparent;
    border-right: 10px solid orange;
    border-bottom: 5px solid transparent;
}

input[type="text"] {
    width: 125px;
    -webkit-box-sizing: border-box;
    -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
    box-sizing: border-box;
}
Answer

You can use title. it'll work for just about everything

<div title="Great for making new friends through cooperation.">

<input script=JavaScript type=button title="Click for a compliment" onclick="window.alert('Your hair reminds me of a sunset across a prairie')" value="making you happy">

<table title="Great job working for those who understand the way i feel">

just think of any tag that can be visible to html window and insert a title="whatever tooltip you'd like" inside it's tag and you got yourself a tooltip.

Answer

You can toggle a child div during onmouseover and onmouseout like this:

function Tooltip(el, text) {
  el.onmouseover = function() {
    el.innerHTML += '<div class="tooltip">' + text + '</div>' 
    }
  el.onmouseout = function() {
    el.removeChild(el.querySelector(".tooltip"))
  }
}

//Sample Usage
Tooltip(document.getElementById("mydiv"),"hello im a tip div")

Example in Stack Snippets & jsFiddle

function Tooltip(el, text) {
  el.onmouseover = function() {
    el.innerHTML += '<div class="tooltip">' + text + '</div>'
  }
  el.onmouseout = function() {
    el.removeChild(el.querySelector(".tooltip"))
  }
}

//Sample Usage
Tooltip(document.getElementById("mydiv"), "I'm a tooltip")
#mydiv {
  position: relative;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  width: 120px;
  height: 50px;
  padding: 5px 10px;
  background-color: #e2f7ff;
  box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px 0px #cecece;
}

.tooltip {
  position: absolute;
  display: inline-block;
  white-space: nowrap;
  width: auto;
  height: auto;
  background-color: #11121b;
  color: white;
  padding: 4px 6px;
  border-radius: 3px;
  z-index: 99;
  left: 100%;
  top: 0;
}
<div id="mydiv"> This is just a div </div>

Answer

A CSS3-only solution could be:

CSS3:

div[id^="tooltip"]:after {content: attr(data-title); background: #e5e5e5; position: absolute; top: -10px; left:  0; right: 0; z-index: 1000;}

HTML5:

<div style="background: yellow;">
    <div id="tooltip-1" data-title="Tooltip Text" style="display: inline-block; position: relative; background: pink;">
        <label>Name</label>
        <input type="text" />
    </div>
</div>

You could then create a tooltip-2 div the same way... you can of course also use the title attribute instead of data attribute.

Answer

Try this. You can do it with only css and I have only added data-title attribute for tooltip.

.tooltip{
  position:relative;
  display: inline-block;
}
.tooltip[data-title]:hover:after {
  content: attr(data-title);
  padding: 4px 8px;
  color: #fff;
  position: absolute;
  left: 0;
  top: 110%;
  white-space: nowrap;  
  border-radius: 5px;  
  background:#000;
}
<div data-title="My tooltip" class="tooltip">
    <label>Name</label>
    <input type="text"/>
</div>
    

Answer

I have developed three type fade effects :

/* setup tooltips */
    .tooltip {
      position: relative;
    }
    .tooltip:before,
    .tooltip:after {
      display: block;

Answer

Without using any API You can do something like this too by using pure CSS and Jquery Demo

HTML

<div class="pointer_tooltip"> 
    Click & Drag to draw the area
</div>

CSS

.pointer_tooltip{
  width : auto;
  height : auto;
  padding : 10px;
  border-radius : 5px;
  background-color : #fff;
  position: absolute;
}

Jquery

$(document).mousemove(function( event ) {
    var pageCoords = "( " + event.pageX + ", " + event.pageY + " )";   

    //set the actuall width
    $('.pointer_tooltip').width($('.pointer_tooltip').width());
    var position_top = event.pageY+18;
    var position_left = event.pageX-60;          
    var width=$('body').width()-$('.pointer_tooltip').width();

    //check if left not minus
    if(position_left<0){
      position_left=10;
    }else if(position_left > width){
     position_left=width-10;
    }       


    $('.pointer_tooltip').css('top',position_top+'px');
    $('.pointer_tooltip').css('left',position_left+'px');
});

Answer

Azle has a nice implementation. Say my target element is an icon, with class name "my_icon". Simply target the element using Azle's add_tooltip function:

az.add_tooltip('my_icon', 1, {
    "this_class" : "my_tooltip",
    "text" : "HELLO THERE!"
})

enter image description here

You can control the position and styling of the tooltip using usual CSS styling. The above tooltip is styled as follows:

az.style_tooltip('my_tooltip', 1, {
    "background" : "black",
    "margin-left" : "10px",
    "color" : "hotpink",
    "font-weight" : "bold",
    "font-family" : "Arial",
    "padding" : "10px",
    "border-radius" : "10px"
})

We can also add an image to the tooltip, by specifying an "image_path":

az.add_tooltip('my_icon', 1, {
    "this_class" : "my_tooltip",
    "text" : "HELLO THERE!",
    "image_path" : "https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/1874/1*toepgVwopga9TYFpSkSxXw.png",
    "image_class" : "my_image"
})

enter image description here

Since we specified an "image_class" above, we can style the image using the same style_tooltip function, this time targeting the image. The above gaming image was styled as follows:

az.style_tooltip('my_image', 1, {
    "width" : "50px",
    "align" : "center"
})

Here's an example using a larger image:

enter image description here

...added and styled as follows:

az.add_tooltip('my_icon', 1, {
    "this_class" : "my_tooltip",
    "text" : "MORE INFO<br><br>",
    "image_path" : "https://i0.wp.com/proactive.ie/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Infographic.jpg?resize=1240%2C1062&ssl=1",
    "image_class" : "my_image"
})

az.style_tooltip('my_image', 1, {
    "width" : "500px"
})

Here is a GIST of the entire code.

Answer
<div title="tooltip text..">
    Your Text....
</div>

Simple most way to add tooltip to your div element.

Answer

You don't need JavaScript for this at all; just set the title attribute:

<div title="Hello, World!">
  <label>Name</label>
  <input type="text"/>
</div>

Note that the visual presentation of the tooltip is browser/OS dependent, so it might fade in and it might not. However, this is the semantic way to do tooltips, and it will work correctly with accessibility software like screen readers.

Demo in Stack Snippets

<div title="Hello, World!">
  <label>Name</label>
  <input type="text"/>
</div>

Answer

Here's a nice jQuery Tooltip:

https://jqueryui.com/tooltip/

To implement this, just follow these steps:

  1. Add this code in your <head></head> tags:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.jquerytools.org/1.2.5/full/jquery.tools.min.js"></script>    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $("[title]").tooltip();
    </script> 
    <style type="text/css"> 
    
    /* tooltip styling. by default the element to be styled is .tooltip  */
    .tooltip {
        display:none;
        background:transparent url(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/25819920/tooltip/black_arrow.png);
        font-size:12px;
        height:70px;
        width:160px;
        padding:25px;
        color:#fff;
    }
    </style> 
    
  2. On the HTML elements that you want to have the tooltip, just add a title attribute to it. Whatever text is in the title attribute will be in the tooltip.

Note: When JavaScript is disabled, it will fallback to the default browser/operating system tooltip.

Answer

Here's a pure CSS 3 implementation (with optional JS)

The only thing you have to do is set an attribute on any div called "data-tooltip" and that text will be displayed next to it when you hover over it.

I've included some optional JavaScript that will cause the tooltip to be displayed near the cursor. If you don't need this feature, you can safely ignore the JavaScript portion of this fiddle.

If you don't want the fade-in on the hover state, just remove the transition properties.

It's styled like the title property tooltip. Here's the JSFiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/toe0hcyn/1/

HTML Example:

<div data-tooltip="your tooltip message"></div>

CSS:

*[data-tooltip] {
    position: relative;
}

*[data-tooltip]::after {
    content: attr(data-tooltip);

    position: absolute;
    top: -20px;
    right: -20px;
    width: 150px;

    pointer-events: none;
    opacity: 0;
    -webkit-transition: opacity .15s ease-in-out;
    -moz-transition: opacity .15s ease-in-out;
    -ms-transition: opacity .15s ease-in-out;
    -o-transition: opacity .15s ease-in-out;
    transition: opacity .15s ease-in-out;

    display: block;
    font-size: 12px;
    line-height: 16px;
    background: #fefdcd;
    padding: 2px 2px;
    border: 1px solid #c0c0c0;
    box-shadow: 2px 4px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);
}

*[data-tooltip]:hover::after {
    opacity: 1;
}

Optional JavaScript for mouse position-based tooltip location change:

var style = document.createElement('style');
document.head.appendChild(style);

var matchingElements = [];
var allElements = document.getElementsByTagName('*');
for (var i = 0, n = allElements.length; i < n; i++) {
    var attr = allElements[i].getAttribute('data-tooltip');
    if (attr) {
        allElements[i].addEventListener('mouseover', hoverEvent);
    }
}

function hoverEvent(event) {
    event.preventDefault();
    x = event.x - this.offsetLeft;
    y = event.y - this.offsetTop;

    // Make it hang below the cursor a bit.
    y += 10;

    style.innerHTML = '*[data-tooltip]::after { left: ' + x + 'px; top: ' + y + 'px  }'

}
Answer

The simplest way would be to set position: relative on the containing element and position: absolute on the tooltip element inside the container to make it float relative to the parent (containing element). For example:

<div style="background: yellow;">
    <div style="display: inline-block; position: relative; background: pink;">
        <label>Name</label>
        <input type="text" />

        <div style="background: #e5e5e5; position: absolute; top: -10px; left: 0; right: 0;">
            Tooltip text
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

Here's a simple tooltip implementation that keeps into account the position of your mouse as well as the height and width of your window :

function showTooltip(e) {
  var tooltip = e.target.classList.contains("tooltip")
      ? e.target
      : e.target.querySelector(":scope .tooltip");
  tooltip.style.left =
      (e.pageX + tooltip.clientWidth + 10 < document.body.clientWidth)
          ? (e.pageX + 10 + "px")
          : (document.body.clientWidth + 5 - tooltip.clientWidth + "px");
  tooltip.style.top =
      (e.pageY + tooltip.clientHeight + 10 < document.body.clientHeight)
          ? (e.pageY + 10 + "px")
          : (document.body.clientHeight + 5 - tooltip.clientHeight + "px");
}

var tooltips = document.querySelectorAll('.couponcode');
for(var i = 0; i < tooltips.length; i++) {
  tooltips[i].addEventListener('mousemove', showTooltip);
}
.couponcode {
    color: red;
    cursor: pointer;
}

.couponcode:hover .tooltip {
    display: block;
}

.tooltip {
    position: absolute;
    white-space: nowrap;
    display: none;
    background: #ffffcc;
    border: 1px solid black;
    padding: 5px;
    z-index: 1000;
    color: black;
}
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, <span class="couponcode">consectetur

Answer

you can do it with simple css... jsfiddle here you can see the example

below css code for tooltip

[data-tooltip] {
  position: relative;
  z-index: 2;
  cursor: pointer;
}

/* Hide the tooltip content by default */
[data-tooltip]:before,
[data-tooltip]:after {
  visibility: hidden;
  -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=0)";
  filter: progid: DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=0);
  opacity: 0;
  pointer-events: none;
}

/* Position tooltip above the element */
[data-tooltip]:before {
  position: absolute;
  bottom: 150%;
  left: 50%;
  margin-bottom: 5px;
  margin-left: -80px;
  padding: 7px;

[data-tooltip]:hover:after {
  visibility: visible;
  -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=100)";
  filter: progid: DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=100);
  opacity: 1;

There are lots of answers to this question but still may be it will help someone. It is for all left, right, top, bottom positions.

Here is the css:

    .m-tb-5 {
        margin-top: 2px;
        margin-bottom: 2px;
    }
    [data-tooltip] {
        display: inline-block;
        position: relative;
        cursor: help;
        padding: 3px;
    }
    /* Tooltip styling */
    [data-tooltip]:before {
        content: attr(data-tooltip);
        display: none;
        position: absolute;
        background: #000;
        color: #fff;
        padding: 3px 6px;
        font-size: 10px;
        line-height: 1.4;
        min-width: 100px;
        text-align: center;
        border-radius: 4px;
    }
    /* Dynamic horizontal centering */
    [data-tooltip-position="top"]:before,
    [data-tooltip-position="bottom"]:before {
        left: 50%;
        -ms-transform: translateX(-50%);
        -moz-transform: translateX(-50%);
        -webkit-transform: translateX(-50%);
        transform: translateX(-50%);
    }
    /* Dynamic vertical centering */
    [data-tooltip-position="right"]:before,
    [data-tooltip-position="left"]:before {
        top: 50%;
        -ms-transform: translateY(-50%);
        -moz-transform: translateY(-50%);
        -webkit-transform: translateY(-50%);
        transform: translateY(-50%);
    }
    [data-tooltip-position="top"]:before {
        bottom: 100%;
        margin-bottom: 6px;
    }
    [data-tooltip-position="right"]:before {
        left: 100%;
        margin-left: 6px;
    }
    [data-tooltip-position="bottom"]:before {
        top: 100%;
        margin-top: 6px;
    }
    [data-tooltip-position="left"]:before {
        right: 100%;
        margin-right: 6px;
    }

    /* Tooltip arrow styling/placement */
    [data-tooltip]:after {
        content: '';
        display: none;
        position: absolute;
        width: 0;
        height: 0;
        border-color: transparent;
        border-style: solid;
    }
    /* Dynamic horizontal centering for the tooltip */
    [data-tooltip-position="top"]:after,
    [data-tooltip-position="bottom"]:after {
        left: 50%;
        margin-left: -6px;
    }
    /* Dynamic vertical centering for the tooltip */
    [data-tooltip-position="right"]:after,
    [data-tooltip-position="left"]:after {
        top: 50%;
        margin-top: -6px;
    }
    [data-tooltip-position="top"]:after {
        bottom: 100%;
        border-width: 6px 6px 0;
        border-top-color: #000;
    }
    [data-tooltip-position="right"]:after {
        left: 100%;
        border-width: 6px 6px 6px 0;
        border-right-color: #000;
    }

    [data-tooltip-position="left"]:after {
        right: 100%;
        border-width: 6px 0 6px 6px;
        border-left-color: #000;
    }
    /* Show the tooltip when hovering */
    [data-tooltip]:hover:before,
    [data-tooltip]:hover:after {
        display: block;
        z-index: 50;
    }

And the HTML tag can be like this:

<p data-tooltip-position="right" data-tooltip="Some tooltip text here" title="">Text Here</p>

<p data-tooltip-position="left" data-tooltip="Some tooltip text here" title="">Text Here</p>

<p data-tooltip-position="top" data-tooltip="Some tooltip text here" title="">Text Here</p>

<p data-tooltip-position="bottom" data-tooltip="Some tooltip text here" title="">Text Here</p>
