About

Tooltips module for AngularJS/Angular2+ and Ionic 2+.

Documentation

The module can be used to display tooltips for any element in your app. It also provides a special treatment for buttons in the header navigation (inspired by Google's apps).

Here's a quick example to show a tooltip below a button:

<!-- positionV specifies where the tooltip should be displayed vertically, can be either top or bottom -->
<!-- arrow tells the tooltip directive to show an arrow above the tooltip box -->
<button ion-button tooltip="I'm a tooltip below a button" positionV="bottom" arrow>
  Press me to see a tooltip
</button>

And here's another example to show a tooltip below a nav button:

<ion-header>
  <ion-navbar>
    <ion-title>Page title</ion-title>
    <ion-buttons end>
      <!-- navTooltip tells the tooltip directive that this is a nav button -->
      <ion-button icon-only tooltip="Call" navTooltip>
        <ion-icon name="call"></ion-icon>
      </ion-button>
    </ion-buttons>
  </ion-navbar>
</ion-header>

Installation

  1. Install this module by running the following command:
npm install ionic4-tooltips --save
  • For AngularJS + Ionic 3 (v0.0.1): npm install ionic4-tooltips@0.0.1 --save
  • For Angular 2-7 + Ionic 3 (v1.0.0): npm install ionic4-tooltips@1.0.0 --save
  1. Import TooltipsModule in your @NgModule. If you are using lazy module loading, then you need to import it in the modules where it's used.
import { TooltipsModule } from 'ionic-tooltips';

@NgModule({
   ...
   imports: [
      ...
      TooltipsModule.forRoot()
   ]
})
export class MyModule { ... }
  1. Import BrowserAnimationsModule in your app's main @NgModule.
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';

@NgModule({
  ...
  imports: [
    ...
    BrowserAnimationsModule
  ]
})

Now you're ready to use this module. See information below for usage.

Usage

The tooltip directive takes a string, which will be used as the tooltip text. To use HTML in your tooltip, you need to pass the content through the [tooltipHtml] directive documented below. When using the tooltip directive, you can also use the following inputs:

tooltipHtml

(string) specifies HTML to use inside the tooltip. This will override any value you passed with the [tooltip] directive (if any was provided).

navTooltip

(boolean) add this attribute or set it's value to true to specify that the tooltip belongs to a nav button. Defaults to false.

positionV

(string) specifies the vertical position of the tooltip. Can be either 'top' or 'bottom'.

positionH

(string) specifies the horizontal position of the tooltip. Can be either 'right' or 'left'.

event

(string) the event to show the tooltip on. Can be either 'hover', 'click' or 'press'. Defaults to 'hover' on desktop, 'press' on mobile.
Note: 'hover' only works on desktop.

desktopEvent

(string) the event to show the tooltip on when displayed on a desktop . Can be either 'hover', 'click' or 'press'. Defaults to 'hover'.
Note: This only works when the event attribute is omitted.

mobileEvent

(string) the event to show the tooltip on when displayed on a mobile. Can be either 'click' or 'press'. Defaults to 'press'.
Note: This only works when the event attribute is omitted.

arrow

(boolean) add this attribute or set it's value to true to show an arrow attached to the tooltip. Defaults to false.

duration

(number) number of milliseconds to show the tooltip for. Defaults to 3000.

active

(boolean) add this attribute or set it's value to true to display the tooltip. Defaults to false.

topOffset

(number) add this attribute to offset the vertical position of the tooltip. Defaults to 0.

leftOffset

(number) add this attribute to offset the horizontal position of the tooltip. Defaults to 0.

hideOthers

(boolean) add this attribute to set weather to hide other visible tooltips. Defaults to false.
