Tooltip in EJ2 JavaScript Rating control

29 Aug 202313 minutes to read

The rating control supports tooltip to show additional information in rating items by setting the showTooltip property. If enabled, the tooltip appears when the user hovers over a rating item.

ej.base.enableRipple(true);

// Initialize the Tooltip Rating control.
var rating = new ej.inputs.Rating({ showTooltip:true, value:3 });

// Render initialized Rating.
rating.appendTo('#rating');

Tooltip template

You can use the tooltipTemplate tag directive to specify a custom template for the tooltip of the rating. The current value of the rating will be passed as the value property in the template context when building the content of the tooltip. This allows you to include dynamic information about the rating in the template.

ej.base.enableRipple(true);

// Initialize the Show Tooltip Rating control.
var rating = new ej.inputs.Rating({ showTooltip:true, value:3, tooltipTemplate: '#tooltipTemplate' });

// Render initialized Rating.
rating.appendTo('#rating');

Tooltip customization

You can customize the appearance of the tooltips using the cssClass property of the rating control and by defining the custom styles for tooltip elements like the below example.

You can find more information about customizing the appearance of the tooltip in the Tooltip Customization documentation.

ej.base.enableRipple(true);

// Initialize the Custom Tooltip Rating control.
let rating = new ej.inputs.Rating({ cssClass: "customtooltip", showTooltip:true, value:3 });

// Render initialized Rating.
rating.appendTo('#rating');
