By default the tooltip attaches to the body. If you want to change the container, simply return a new element. destroyTooltipOnHide boolean | { keepParent: boolean } false whether destroy tooltip when tooltip is hidden.In general, destroyTooltipOnHide will only remove itself instead of parent container of it. Parent container will be removed include tooltip when keepParent is true id String Id which gets attached to the tooltip content. Can be used with aria-describedby to achieve Screenreader-Support.

Important Note

Tooltip requires a child node that accepts an onMouseEnter, onMouseLeave, onFocus, onClick event. This means the child node must be a built-in component like div or span, or a custom component that passes its props to its built-in component child.


For accessibility purpose you can use the id prop to link your tooltip with another element. For example attaching it to an input element:

    <input type="text"

If you do it like this, a screenreader would read the content of your tooltip if you focus the input element.

NOTE: role="tooltip" is also added to expose the purpose of the tooltip element to a screenreader.
