How to apply a jQuery tooltip

Chinweuba Elijah Azubuike


A tooltip is a tool that helps us provide more detailed information about specific areas of our website. The goal is to enhance the website’s interactivity to make it more user-friendly.

What is a jQuery tooltip?

A tooltip provides additional information about specific tags or fields on a website. We achieve this by calling the jQuery tooltip() method on the target element of our page. Let's take a look at the example below:


jQuery tooltip


We apply a tooltip to the input field in the code above to provide extra information.

  • Lines 7–10: We link the jQuery CSS and JS libraries so that we can use the tooltip() method.

  • Lines 12–14: We call the tooltip() method on document. This enables us to add a tooltip to the input infield.

  • Line 26: We add a tooltip to the input field. This input field has an attribute title that gives extra information for the tooltip to display.

Note: The attribute title is displayed when the user hovers the cursor over the input field.
