Tailwind CSS Popover - Flowbite

Use the popover component to show detailed information inside a pop-up box relative to the element that is being clicked or hovered based on multiple styles

Get started with the popover component to show any type of content inside a pop-up box when hovering or clicking over a trigger element. There are multiple examples that you can choose from, such as showing more information about a user profile, company profile, password strength, and more.

Make sure that you have the Flowbite JavaScript included in your project to enable the popover interactivity by following the quickstart guide.

Default popover #

Initialize a new popover by adding the data-popover-target="{elementId}" data attribute to the trigger element where elementId is the id of the popover component.

JavaScript behaviour #

The Popover API from Flowbite can be used to create an object that will show a pop-up box relative to the main trigger element based on the parameters, options, and methods that you provide.

Object parameters #

Create a new Popover object with the object parameters like the trigger element, the popover content element, and extra options to set the placement and offset.

Parameter Type Required Description
targetEl Element Required Set the popover component as the target element.
triggerEl Element Required Set an element to trigger the popover when clicking or hovering (ie. a button, text).
options Object Optional Use the options parameter to set the positioning of the popover element, trigger type, offset, and more.

Options #

Use the following options as the third parameter for the Popover object to set the positioning, offset, and the trigger type (hover or click).

Option Type Description
placement String Set the position of the popover element relative to the trigger element choosing from top|right|bottom|left.
triggerType String Set the event type that will trigger the popover content choosing between hover|click.
offset Integer Set the offset distance between the popover and the trigger element.
onHide Function Set a callback function when the popover is hidden.
onShow Function Set a callback function when the popover is shown.

Methods #

Use the methods from the Popover object to programatically show or hide the popover from directly JavaScript.

Method Description
show() Use this method on the Popover object to show the popover content.
hide() Use this method on the Popover object to hide the popover content.

Example #

Use following JavaScript as an example to learn how to initialize, set the options, and use the methods for the Popover object.

First of all, set the target element as the popover itself and the trigger element which can be a button or text element.

After that you can also set the options object to change the placement and trigger type of the popover, alongside with the callback functions.

// set the popover content element
const targetEl = document.getElementById('popoverContent');

// set the element that trigger the popover using hover or click
const triggerEl = document.getElementById('popoverButton');

// options with default values
const options = {
  placement: 'bottom',
  triggerType: 'hover',
  offset: 10,
  onHide: () => {
      console.log('popover is shown');
  },
  onShow: () => {
      console.log('popover is hidden');
  }
};

Create a new Popover object based on the options above.

/*
* targetEl: required
* triggerEl: required
* options: optional
*/
const popover = new Popover(targetEl, triggerEl, options);

Use the show and hide methods on the Popover object to programatically show and hide the popover element using JavaScript.

// show the popover
popover.show();

// hide the popover
popover.hide();

HTML Markup #

Use the following HTML code for the JavaScript example above.
