Tooltip for Angular

Build Status


Install the npm package.

npm i ng2-tooltip-directive

Import Ng2Module:

import { TooltipModule } from 'ng2-tooltip-directive';
    imports: [ TooltipModule ]


Options can be set in the directive tag, so they have the highest priority.

<span tooltip="Tooltip" placement="top" show-delay="500">Tooltip on top</span>

You may pass as an object:

<span tooltip="Tooltip" [options]="myOptions">Tooltip on left</span>

myOptions = {
    'placement': 'left',
    'show-delay': 500


name type default description
placement "top", "bottom", "left", "right" "top" The position of the tooltip.
show-delay number 0 The delay in ms before showing the tooltip.
hide-delay number 300 The delay in ms before removing the tooltip.
hide-delay-mobile number 1500 Delay in milliseconds before hiding the tooltip (for mobile devices)
display boolean true Tooltip availability for display.
display-mobile boolean true Display the tooltip on mobile devices.
z-index number 0 Z-index of the tooltip.
trigger "hover", "click" "hover" Specifies how the tooltip is triggered. Control the closing time with "hide-delay".
tooltip-class string Classes to be passed to the tooltip.
animation-duration number 300 The duration controls how long the animation takes to run from start to finish.
theme "dark", "light" "dark" Theme of tooltip background and text.
shadow boolean true Shadow of the tooltip.

When you call events, the delays that are specified in the options in the directive are taken into account. Default delay before tooltip hiding is 300 milliseconds.

Event Description
show The event is called before the tooltip appears.
shown The event is called after the animation of the appearance of the tooltip.
hide The event is called before the tooltip is hidden.
hidden The event is called after the animation of the tooltip is hidden.


If you specified the directive options, they will be taken into account when calling methods. Including the delay before the appearance and hiding of the tooltip.

Method Description
show() Shows the tooltip
hide() Hides the tooltip
