TabStrip / Tooltip



In this sample you can see how to attach a tooltip to the TabStrip tabs.

Whenever a mouse cursor enters the tab space, a tooltip will appear. To simplify this example, the default tooltip settings are used and only the tooltip title is set.

We are using the IntegralUI Tooltip directive to apply a tooltip to each tab. This directive accepts an object with all options that determines the appearance and behavior of the tooltip. Here is a list of available options for the Tooltip directive:

  • enabled - determines whether the Tooltip is enabled or disabled
  • showMarker - when true, an arrow marker will be displayed for the Tooltip window
  • title - title of the Tooltip, can contain multiple lines of text or any custom HTML
  • position - determines where the Tooltip will appear: above, below, left or right side of the target element or at mouse position
  • initialDelay - the time in miliseconds prior Tooltip is shown
  • autoPopDelay - the time in miliseconds for Tooltip to remain visible
