🔬️ Help make Tooltips better by answering a few questions.




Install the npm package.

// npm i ng2-tooltip-directive

  npm i @amin-karimi/ng2-tooltip-directive

Import Ng2Module:

//import { TooltipModule } from 'ng2-tooltip-directive';
import { TooltipModule } from '@amin-karimi/ng2-tooltip-directive';
    imports: [ TooltipModule ]


Options can be set in the directive tag, so they have the highest priority.

<span tooltip="Tooltip" placement="top" showDelay="500">Tooltip on top</span>

You may pass as an object:

<span tooltip="Tooltip" [options]="myOptions">Tooltip on left</span>
myOptions = {
    'placement': 'left',
    'showDelay': 500

You can pass HTML as content :

<span tooltip="<p>Hello i'm a <strong>bold</strong> text!</p>">
  Tooltip with HTML content
<ng-template #HtmlContent>
  <p>Hello i'm a <strong>bold</strong> text!</p>

<span [tooltip]="HtmlContent" contentType="template">
  Tooltip with template content

Set default values

Create a file with your settings, for example:

import { TooltipOptions } from 'ng2-tooltip-directive';

export const MyDefaultTooltipOptions: TooltipOptions = {
  'show-delay': 500

//import { TooltipModule, TooltipOptions } from 'ng2-tooltip-directive';
import { TooltipModule, TooltipOptions } from '@amin-karimi/ng2-tooltip-directive';
import { MyDefaultTooltipOptions } from './my-default-options';
