1.0.0-4 • Public • Published

angular-tipped npm version Bower version

An AngularJS directive for the Tipped tooltip library.


Require the fv.tipped module:

angular.module('myApp', ['fv.tipped']);

Simple Tooltips

Use the directive:

<div tipped title="foo {{bar}}">{{bar}}</div>

This will create a Tipped tooltip that will show on hover after 1s and hide when you move your mouse out after 500ms. The value is interpolated. These defaults can be changed by injecting the tippedOptions constant:

angular.module('myApp', ['fv.tipped']).config(function(tippedOptions) {
    tippedOptions.showDelay = 500; // reduce the delay to show the tooltip to 500ms.

Pass any options to Tipped (see the docs) via an object in the tipped directive itself:

<div tipped="{showDelay: 500}" title="I'm a tooltip">hover me</div>

Unique Features

Template URLs

The above is of course for a simple tooltip, but if you wish to do something more involved, you can pass a template URL to the directive:

<div tipped template-url="'my-template.html'">hooey</div>

The value of templateUrl is evaluated against the current scope, so you may pass it a string in single-quotes or an expression. There is no $watch on the expression as of this writing. The directive will look in the $templateCache here for something called my-template.html, and will/should avoid making the GET request to go grab it, if found. The template is compiled and linked against the current scope, so you can do basically anything you want within one of these tooltips.

Show/Hide via Scope

angular-tipped supports an option called show, which is not a Tipped option, and is different than showOn . Pass a model to show in the options and the tooltip will hide/show as it changes. For example:

<div tipped="{show: foo}" title="jumpin">punkins</div>
$ = false;
//... time passes ...
$ = true; // tooltip shows

The Tipped Service

The Tipped service allows you to create a Tipped configuration object containing all user defaults (and "default" defaults) to be used in the view.


The tippedModal Directive

The tippedModal directive creates a dialog-box-like tooltip (functioning much like the ui-bootstrap $modal service, which is closable via Scope functions $dismiss() or $close(). Opening a tooltip will return a resolved or rejected promise upon closure or dismissal, respectively.



$ bower install angular-tipped

Alternatively, if using in a server-side context (such as with Browserify):

$ npm install angular-tipped


Note: Tipped is not open-source software, and as such is not included in angular-tipped's depepdencies; it must be installed manually.

This package may or may not work with newer versions of Tipped or jQuery. If you have success or failure with newer versions than those listed above, please let us know.
