Cross Browser friendly pure CSS ToolTip

Cross Browser friendly pure CSS ToolTip

There are several ways to design ToolTip. You can design a tooltip using JavaScript or JQuery or CSS or BootStrap. Compare to Client Script ToolTip pure CSS based tooltip renders better performance. In the below demo I created a ToolTip using pure CSS classes. This is Cross Browser friendly and easy to customize.

“addtooltip” class represents styles for HTML page and mouse over area. Class Tooltip is responsible for the look and feel of ToolTip popup div. Using tooptip:before maintaining mouse cursor type during mouse movement from link to tooltip window. Similarly, using tooltip:after drawing Triangle to the bottom of tooltip rectangle.

In HTML I am with 2 div’s. First Div is addtooltip which contains tooltip div as a child. This Tooltip is based on pure CSS to run this you don’t required any plugin like JQuery or AngularJS.
