Tooltip

Tooltips? More like Cooltips. But really though, tooltips are nifty for displaying extended information for a term or action on a page.

Basic Tooltip

By default, a tooltip appears below the defined term on hover.

The <span data-tooltip tabindex="1" title="Fancy word for a beetle.">scarabaeus</span> hung quite
clear of any branches, and, if allowed to fall, would have fallen at our feet.

Tooltip Top

To get a tip-top top tooltip (lol), just add the class .top to the <span> element.

Tooltip clicking

By default, clicking on a tooltip will leave it open until you click somewhere else. However, you can disable that by adding data-click-open="false"

<span data-tooltip class="top" tabindex="2" title="You see?  I'm open!">
  tooltip will stay open
</span>
while
<span data-tooltip class="top" data-click-open="false" tabindex="2" title="I don't stay open">
  this one will only be open when hovered
</span>

Tooltip Right and Left

You can also position the tooltips to the right and left of the word by adding the classes .right or .left to the <span> element.

When using Foundation in right-to-left mode, "right" still means right, and "left" still means left.

When he was dressed he went down the hall into the
<span data-tooltip class="right" tabindex="3" title="Aligned on the right">kitchen</span>.
The table was almost hidden beneath all Dudley's birthday presents. It looked as though
<span data-tooltip class="left" tabindex="4" title="Aligned on the left">Dudley</span>
had gotten the new computer he wanted, not to mention the second television and the racing bike.

Explicit Positioning

New in v6.4: Heads up! This explicit positioning model is a new feature in v6.4.

Now with tooltips you can define both positions for the tip. These tooltips have a fully explicit positioning model through which you can use both data-position and data-alignment to define both positions of the box.

These dropdowns sets various positioning and alignments. Valid positions are left/right/top/bottom. Valid alignments are left/right/top/bottom/center. Left align means left sides should line up. Right align means right sides should line up. Center align means centers should line up.
