Lightweight Tooltip Plugin With jQuery And Title Attribute - minimalTips

minimalTips is a minimal, clean, animated jQuery tooltip plugin that uses native title attribute and works with any HTML tags.

1. Insert the jQuery minimalTips plugin's files into the document which has jQuery library loaded.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="jquery.minimalTips.css">
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-nvAa0+6Qg9clwYCGGPpDQLVpLNn0fRaROjHqs13t4Ggj3Ez50XnGQqc/r8MhnRDZ" 
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>
<script src="jquery.minimalTips.js"></script>

2. Initialize the tooltip plugin on document ready and we're ready to go.

$(function(){
  $.minimalTips();
});

3. Create a custom tooltip for a normal link using the native title attribute.

<a title="This is a tooltip">
  Basic
</a>

4. Add the mintip class if you want to use other html tags.

<span class="mintip" title="This is a tooltip">
  Span Element
</span>

5. Override the default CSS rules to create your own tooltip styles.

#MinimalTip {
  font-family: Helvetica, Sans-Serif;
  font-size: 12px;
  color: #EEE;
  border: 1px solid #000;
  background: #222;
  position: absolute;
  padding: 2px 5px;
  display: none;
  max-width: 260px;
  
  z-index: 3001; /* Aumente ou diminua se for necessário */
  box-shadow: 1px 1px 2px #000;
  -moz-box-shadow: 1px 1px 2px #000;
  -webkit-box-shadow: 1px 1px 2px #000;
  filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(strength = 1, direction = 135, color = '#000000');
  -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(strength = 1, Direction = 135, Color = '#000000')";
  opacity: 0.9;
  -ms-filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=90);
  filter: alpha(opacity=90);
  -moz-opacity:0.9;
  -webkit-opacity:0.9
}
