Tooltip JSP Tag Overview

The Tooltip JSP tag is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI Tooltip widget.

Getting Started

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI Tooltip.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for JSP.

Step 2 Create a new action method which renders the view.

    @RequestMapping(value = {"index"}, method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public String index() {

        return "web/window/index";
    }

Step 3 Add the Kendo UI taglib mapping to the page.

    <%@taglib prefix="kendo" uri="http://www.kendoui.com/jsp/tags"%>

Step 4 Add a tooltip tag. Use the element with container id as container and show a tooltip for the anchor elements within it.

 <kendo:tooltip name="#container" filter="a[title]" />

Event Handling

Subscribe to Events

You can subscribe to all events exposed by Kendo UI Tooltip by the handler name.

<kendo:tooltip name="#container" show="tooltip_show" hide="tooltip_hide">
</kendo:tooltip>

<script>
    function tooltip_show() {
        // Handle the show event
    }

    function tooltip_hide() {
        // Handle the hide event
    }
</script>

Reference

Existing Instances

You are able to reference an existing Tooltip instance via the jQuery.data(). Once a reference is established, you are able to use the Tooltip API to control its behavior.

// Put this after your Kendo UI Tooltip tag declaration
<script>
$(function() {
    // Notice that the name attribute of the tooltip is used to get its client-side instance
    var tooltipObject = $("#container").data("kendoTooltip");
});
</script>

Asynchronous Loading

You are able to load views asynchronously through the content attribute.

The example below demonstrates how to load the contents of the Tooltip by using an asynchronous call.

<c:url value="/web/tooltip/content" var="remoteUrl" />

<kendo:tooltip name="#container">
    <kendo:tooltip-content>
        <kendo:tooltip-content-url url="${ remoteUrl }" />
    </kendo:tooltip-content>
</kendo:tooltip>
