Creating a Bubble Point Tooltips with CSS3 and jQuery

Chris Coyier shares a tutorial that creates a bubble point tooltips with CSS3 and jQuery. Note that its demo will not work on Opera.

To start with, here’s the HTML:

<a href="#" title="Hi, I'm a tooltip thingy.">link</a>

Givje the link a title attribute.


$("article a[title]").tooltips();

The plugin will do the following: loop through each link; make div.tooltip for each, text inside that matches it links the title attribute; remove links title attribute; when link is hovered on, it positions the tooltip accordingly and slides it to be visible; when link is hovered off, it slides the link out of visibility.

Here’s the massive code dump:

// IIFE to ensure safe use of $
(function( $ ) {

  // Create plugin
  $.fn.tooltips = function(el) {

    var $tooltip,
      $body = $('body'),

    // Ensure chaining works
    return this.each(function(i, el) {

      $el = $(el).attr("data-tooltip", i);

      // Make DIV and append to page
      var $tooltip = $('<div data-tooltip="' + i + '">' + $el.attr('title') + '<div></div></div>').appendTo("body");

      // Position right away, so first appearance is smooth
      var linkPosition = $el.position();

        top: - $tooltip.outerHeight() - 13,
        left: linkPosition.left - ($tooltip.width()/2)

      // Get rid of yellow box popup

      // Mouseenter
      .hover(function() {

        $el = $(this);

        $tooltip = $('div[data-tooltip=' + $'tooltip') + ']');

        // Reposition tooltip, in case of page movement e.g. screen resize                       
        var linkPosition = $el.position();

          top: - $tooltip.outerHeight() - 13,
          left: linkPosition.left - ($tooltip.width()/2)

        // Adding class handles animation through CSS

        // Mouseleave
      }, function() {

        $el = $(this);

        // Temporary class for same-direction fadeout
        $tooltip = $('div[data-tooltip=' + $'tooltip') + ']').addClass("out");

        // Remove all classes
        setTimeout(function() {
          }, 300);
