Getting started with JavaScript (ES5) Tooltip control

03 Mar 2021 / 3 minutes to read

The Essential JS 2 for JavaScript (global script) is an ES5 formatted pure JavaScript framework which can be directly used in latest web browsers.

Component Initialization

The Essential JS 2 JavaScript components can be initialized by using either of the following ways.

  • Using local script and style references in a HTML page.
  • Using CDN link for script and style reference.

Using local script and style references in a HTML page

Step 1: Create an app folder myapp for Essential JS 2 JavaScript components.

Step 2: You can get the global scripts and styles from the Essential Studio JavaScript (Essential JS 2) build installed location.

Syntax:

Script: **(installed location)**/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/{RELEASE_VERSION}/Essential JS 2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/dist/global/{PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Styles: **(installed location)**/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/{RELEASE_VERSION}/Essential JS 2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/styles/material.css

Example:

Script: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.17/Essential JS 2/ej2-popups/dist/global/ej2-popups.min.js

Styles: C:/Program Files (x86)/Syncfusion/Essential Studio/15.4.17/Essential JS 2/ej2-popups/styles/material.css

Step 3: Create a folder myapp/resources and copy/paste the global scripts and styles from the above installed location to myapp/resources location.

Step 4: Create a HTML page (index.html) in myapp location and add the Essentials JS 2 script and style references.

        <title>Essential JS 2</title>
        <!-- Essential JS 2 material theme -->
        <link href="resources/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

        <!-- Essential JS 2 Tooltip's global script -->
        <script src="resources/ej2-popups.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
   </head>
   <body>
   </body>
  </html>

Step 5: Now, add the Tooltip element and initiate the Essential JS 2 Tooltip component in the index.html by using following code

        <title>Essential JS 2</title>
        <!-- Essential JS 2 material theme -->
        <ink href="resources/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

        <!-- Essential JS 2 Tooltip's global script -->
        <script src="resources/ej2-popups.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
   </head>
   <body>
        <!-- Add the HTML span element  -->
        <div id='container'>
            <div style="margin: 50px;">
                <span id='target'>Show Tooltip</span>
            </div>
        </div>
        <script>
            // Initialize Essential JS 2 JavaScript Tooltip component
            var tooltip = new ej.popups.Tooltip({
                width: '150px',
                height: '40px',
                content: 'Tooltip with specific width and height'
            });
            tooltip.appendTo('#target');
        </script>
   </body>
  </html>

Step 6: Now, run the index.html in web browser, it will render the Essential JS 2 Tooltip component.

Step 1: Create an app folder myapp for the Essential JS 2 JavaScript components.

Step 2: The Essential JS 2 component’s global scripts and styles are already hosted in the below CDN link formats.

Syntax:

Script: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/dist/global/{PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/styles/material.css

Example:

Script: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-popups/dist/global/ej2-popups.min.js

Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-popups/styles/material.css

We can also use CRG to generate combined component styles.

Step 3: Create a HTML page (index.html) in myapp location and add the CDN link references. Now, add the Tooltip element and initiate the Essential JS 2 Tooltip component in the index.html by using following code.

                <span id='target'>Show Tooltip</span>
            </div>
        </div>
        <script>
            //Initialize Essential JS 2 JavaScript Tooltip component
            var tooltip = new ej.popups.Tooltip({
                width: '150px',
                height: '40px',
                content: 'Tooltip with specific width and height'
            });
            tooltip.appendTo('#target');
        </script>
   </body>
  </html>

Step 4: Now, run the index.html in web browser, it will render the Essential JS 2 Tooltip component.
