Tooltip Overview

What does the component do?

It allows the user to show explanations if required.

When should the component be used?

For context-specific explanations on interaction elements or text.

Rules

  • The tooltip consists of an icon and the overlay → in exceptional circumstances, another icon can be used for the tooltip (e.g. info icon).
  • The overlay opens when the ??? is clicked on.
  • Only free text and links may be used in the overlay. The text may also be displayed as a list.
  • The tooltip text can have a maximum of 300 characters.
  • A link may open content in a lightbox or on a new page (new tab). It cannot be loaded in the current browser window.
  • The overlay contains a ??? to close the overlay.
  • The overlay can also be hidden again by clicking anywhere next to the overlay.
  • The pointer of the overlay, which points to the icon, can be positioned anywhere horizontally (depends on the position of the tooltip on the page).
