1. Summary

I couldn’t find how I can do tooltip on the click event to an element without jQuery if I use hint.css.

2. Argumentation

2.1. Common cause


2.2. Details

If the end-user of my site click to some button, it would be nice to tell him that the action has been taken. It’s not good if the end-user doubts whether he did everything right. Also, it’s desirable that the dialog isn’t obtrusive and distracting.

3. Desired behavior

Currently, I use Tooltipster jQuery tooltips library on my site for these purposes. Example, how it works:


One tooltip by hover, another tooltip by left mouse button click.

Unfortunately, Tooltipster have a big jQuery dependency and doesn’t work with Zepto and cash — lightweight jQuery alternatives.

Can we get the similar behavior for hint.css?

4. Not helped

I couldn’t find how I can get the desired behavior in:

  1. Hint.css description and examples
  2. Google (this example doesn’t work for me)
  3. Issues/pull requests of this repository (and this example also)

Just download the unminified version of hint.css and open it in your text editor and replace every word that contains "hover" with "focus".
