Initialization and configuration:

//initialize instance
var enjoyhint_instance = new EnjoyHint({});

//simple config. 
//Only one step - highlighting(with description) "New" button 
//hide EnjoyHint after a click on the button.
var enjoyhint_script_steps = [
    'click .new_btn' : 'Click the "New" button to start creating your project'

//set script config

//run Enjoyhint script

Script Configuration

The sequence of steps can be only linear for now. So, the script config is an array. Every element of this array is the config for some step.

Example of script configuration

Highlight some button and after you click on it, highlight some panel:

var enjoyhint_script_steps = [
    'click .some_btn' : 'Click on this btn'
    'click .some_panel' : 'Click on this panel'

Properties of the step configuration

  • "event selector" : "description" - to describe a step you should set an event type, selecte element and add description for this element (hint)
  • arrowColor - the color of a marker that accepts all CSS colors.
  • keyCode - the code of a button, which triggers the next EnjoyHint step upon a click. Defined by the “key” event. (“key #block” : “hello”).
  • event_selector - if you need to attach an event (that was set in "event" property) to other selector, you can use this one
  • timeout - delay before the moment, when an element is highlighted
  • shape - shape for highlighting (circle|rect)
  • radius - if the shape of "circle" is specified, we can set the radius.
  • margin - margin for the highlight shape (for Ex.:10)
  • top - top margin for the shape of "rect" type
  • right - right margin for the shape of "rect" type
  • bottom - bottom margin for the shape of "rect" type
  • left - left margin for the shape of "rect" type
  • scrollAnimationSpeed - sets the auto scroll speed (ms).
  • nextButton - allows applying its classes and names for the button Nеxt.
  • skipButton - allows applying its classes and names for the button Skip. For the example :
	var options = {
                    "next #block": 'Hello.',
                    "nextButton" : {className: "myNext", text: "NEXT"},
                    "skipButton" : {className: "mySkip", text: "SKIP"},

  • showSkip - shows or hides the Skip button (true|false)
  • showNext - shows or hides the Next button (true|false)
  • showPrev - shows or hides the Previous button (true|false)

Non-standard events:

  • auto - for example, you need to click on the same button on the second step imediatelly after the first step and go to the next step after it. Then you can use "auto" in the "event_type" property and "click" in "event" property.
  • custom - this value is very usefull if you need to go to the next step by event in your app code. For example, you want to go to the next step only after some data have been loaded in your application. Then you should use the "custom" event_type and the "trigger" method of the EnjoyHint instance.
//Example of using custom event_type
$.get('/load/some_data', function(data){
  //trigger method has only one argument: event_name.(equal to the value of event property in step config)
  • next - when you set value of event_type to "next", you will see the "Next" btn on this step.
  • key - tells EnjoyHint to go to the next step when you click on the button defined by the keyCode


  • set - set current steps configuration. Arguments: config
  • run - run the current script. Has no arguments
  • resume - resume the script from the step where it was stopped. Has no arguments
  • getCurrentStep - returns the current step index
  • trigger - After writing this code you can either move to the next step or finish with EnjoyHint (next|skip)


Script Events:

  • onStart - fires on the first step.
  • onEnd - fires after the last step in script.
  • onSkip - fires after user has clicked skip.
var enjoyhint_instance = new EnjoyHint({
    //do something

Step Events:

  • onBeforeStart - fires before the step is started.
var enjoyhint_script_steps = [
    selector:'.some_btn',//jquery selector
    description:'Click on this btn',
      //do something
