Usage

Enable popovers via JavaScript:

query('#example').popover(options)

Markup

For performance reasons, the Tooltip and Popover data-apis are opt in. If you would like to use them just specify a selector option.

Options

Options can be passed via data attributes or JavaScript. For data attributes, append the option name to data-, as in data-animation="".

Name type default description
animation boolean true apply a css fade transition to the tooltip
html boolean true Insert html into the popover. If false, dojo's NodeList text method will be used to insert content into the dom. Use text if you're worried about XSS attacks.
placement string|function 'right' how to position the popover - top | bottom | left | right
selector string false if a selector is provided, tooltip objects will be delegated to the specified targets
trigger string 'click' how popover is triggered - click | hover | focus | manual
title string | function '' default title value if `title` attribute isn't present
content string | function '' default content value if `data-content` attribute isn't present
delay number | object 0

delay showing and hiding the popover (ms) - does not apply to manual trigger type

If a number is supplied, delay is applied to both hide/show

Object structure is: delay: { show: 500, hide: 100 }

Heads up! Options for individual popovers can alternatively be specified through the use of data attributes.

Sed posuere consectetur est at lobortis. Aenean eu leo quam. Pellentesque ornare sem lacinia quam venenatis vestibulum.

Popover right

Sed posuere consectetur est at lobortis. Aenean eu leo quam. Pellentesque ornare sem lacinia quam venenatis vestibulum.

Popover bottom
