Easily create a nicely looking tooltip.


To apply this component, add the data-uk-tooltip attribute to an element. You also need to add a title attribute, whose value will represent your tooltip's text.


Hover me


<button class="uk-button" data-uk-tooltip title="">...</button>
<span data-uk-tooltip title="">...</span>


Add one of the following options to the data-uk-tooltip attribute to adjust the tooltip's alignment.

Attribute Description Example
pos:'top' Aligns the tooltip to the top.
pos:'top-left' Aligns the tooltip to the top left.
pos:'top-right' Aligns the tooltip to the top right.
