Description

Tooltip can be described as a small label or text that appears next to a tool/control when the user pauses over it.

Some usability guidelines for tooltip

  • The tooltip text should be kept small limiting to one or two words only.
  • Should not use symbols and punctuation in the tooltip text.
  • Tooltip should be visible for 3-5 secs when the user hovers over a button/tool and should be turned off after that.
  • Should be really useful for novice users.
