Angular Material - Tooltips


Advertisements

Angular Material provides various special methods to show unobtrusive tooltips to the users. It provides ways to assign directions for them and the md-tooltip directive is used to show tooltips. A tooltip activates whenever the user focuses, hovers over, or touches the parent component.

Attributes

Sr.No Parameter & Description
1

md-visible

This is Boolean bound and determines whether the tooltip is currently visible.

2

md-delay

How many milliseconds to wait to show the tooltip after the user focuses, hovers, or touches the parent. By default, it is 300ms.

3

md-autohide

If present or provided with a boolean value, the tooltip will hide on mouse leave, regardless of focus.

4

md-direction

This determines the direction in which the tooltip goes - supports left, right, top, and bottom. By default, the direction is towards bottom.
