Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe...

When a tooltip does not find its target element, the following warning is issued:

[BootstrapVue warn]: tooltip - Unable to find target element in document.

Firstly, it is hardly possible to find the target element in question because the target element id, which is available at the code location there the warning is issued, is not added to the message. Secondly, these warnings are issued even in production builds, which is imo superfluous, as this does not cause any harm.

Describe the solution you'd like

  1. Please add the target element ID to the warning message to make it easier to find the missing target element, respectively the tooltip in question
  2. Please add a way to suppress these warnings in production builds - by observing the environment variable NODE_ENV and/or by providing a configuration parameter

Describe alternatives you've considered

You should be able to disable the warning in your production build by configuring this variable.

@Hiws, Thank you for the information. Unfortunately, this does not have any observable effect in my case (i.e. the warnings are still issued) - neither when setting it at build time nor at runtime. If it worked, this would be a solution for 2. - even if it might be better to disable warnings in a more selective way. For now, I have implemented a brute-force wrapper for console.warn as follows:

const originalWarn = console.warn
const wrappedWarn = function () {
  if (util.mode.isExperimental() || arguments[0] !== '[BootstrapVue warn]: tooltip - Unable to find target element in document.') {
    return originalWarn(...arguments)
console.warn = wrappedWarn

as warnings arise very infrequently, this will not have a major impact on runtime performance.
