Initialization of Builder

For your convenience, you can initialize the constructor only using the view to which you want the tooltip to refer, in that case the tooltip will be attached to the decorView(OVER ALL VIEWS)


or if you wish you can add a root view and the tooltip will be ubicate inside of this view

Tooltip.on(View, View)

Once the builder has been initialized, you can configure your tooltip, below you can briefly see the different methods you can use for that config

  • To set text builder.text(text)

  • To set text typeface builder.textTypeFace(typeface)

  • To set text size builder.textSize(textSize) builder.textSize(unit, textSize)

  • To set the icon size in px builder.iconSize(h, w)

  • To set the tooltip bubble color builder.color(color)

  • To set the tooltip content padding in px builder.padding(top, right, bottom, left)

  • To set the position of the tooltip in relation to the view to which it points(by deafult Bottom) builder.position(position)

  • To set the corner radius in px of the tooltip bubble builder.corner(radius)

  • To enable autohide on tap(by default is enabled) builder.clickToHide(bool)

  • To set the distance in px between the tooltip and the view to which it points builder.distanceWithView(distance)

  • To set the the border color and width in px builder.border(color, width)

  • To set the the border margin in px builder.border(margin)

  • To set shadow padding builder.shadow(padding)

  • To set the arrow size builder.arrowSize(h, w)

  • To set a tooltip minWidth in px if the space in parent isn t enough the tooltip will be relocated to the opposite position builder.minWidth(w)

  • To set a tooltip minHeight in px if the space in parent isn t enough the tooltip will be relocated to the opposite position builder.minHeight(w)

  • To set a tooltip show/hide animation builder.animation(anim) builder.animation(animIn, animOut)

  • To set a lifecycle listener to know when the tooltip has showed or hidden builder.displayListener(listener)

  • To set a click listener to catch when the user click the tooltip builder.tooltipClickListener(listener)

  • To set a click listener to catch when the user click the view to which the tooltip points builder.refViewClickListener(listener)

  • To enable overlay function and set a listener to catch when the user click the overlay(by default the overlay click has disabled, it means that if the user clicks in the overlay, that click will be send to the view under the overlay) builder.overlay(color) builder.overlay(color, listener)

Show options

After configure your tooltip just left show it, if you want set a duration in millis and the tooltip will be autohide after that time(by default autohide is disabled)

This show method return a Tooltip instance, with which you can close, closeNow(without animation) and show it again

tooltip.closeNow(), text)
