Angular Bootstrap Popovers

Angular popovers - Bootstrap 4 & Material Design

Here is some documentation and examples for adding Angular Bootstrap popovers, like those found in iOS, to any element on your site.


Example



        <button type="button" mdbBtn color="primary" class="waves-light"
          mdbPopover="And here some amazing content. It's very engaging. Right?"
          placement="right"
          mdbPopoverHeader="Popover on right" mdbWavesEffect>
          Popover on right
      </button>

      

Four directions

Four options are available: top, right, bottom, and left aligned.



        <button type="button" mdbBtn color="default" class="waves-light"
          mdbPopover="And here some amazing content. It's very engaging. Right?"
          placement="right"
          mdbPopoverHeader="Popover on right" mdbWavesEffect>
          Popover on right
        </button>

        <button type="button" mdbBtn color="default" class="waves-light"
          mdbPopover="And here some amazing content. It's very engaging. Right?"
          placement="bottom"
          mdbPopoverHeader="Popover on bottom" mdbWavesEffect>
          Popover on bottom
      </button>

        <button type="button" mdbBtn color="default" class="waves-light"
          mdbPopover="And here some amazing content. It's very engaging. Right?"
          placement="left"
          mdbPopoverHeader="Popover on left" mdbWavesEffect>
          Popover on left
        </button>

        <button type="button" mdbBtn color="default" class="waves-light"
          mdbPopover="And here some amazing content. It's very engaging. Right?"
          placement="top"
          mdbPopoverHeader="Popover on top" mdbWavesEffect>
          Popover on top
        </button>

      

Dismiss on next click

You may use the focus trigger to dismiss popovers on the next click that the user makes.

Dismissible popover


          <button type="button" mdbBtn color="danger" class="waves-light"
            mdbPopover="And here some amazing content. It's very engaging. Right?"
            placement="right"
            mdbPopoverHeader="Dismissible popover"
            triggers="focus" mdbWavesEffect>
            Dismissible popover
        </button>

      

Dynamic HTML Template

Create a tag, as below, and place [mdbPopover]="popTemplate" inside your <button> tag.



        <ng-template #popTemplate>Here we go: <div [innerHtml]="html"></div></ng-template>
        <button id="popTemplate" type="button" mdbBtn color="success" mdbPopoverHeader="Dynamic html inside" [mdbPopover]="popTemplate" mdbWavesEffect>
          Show me popover with html
        </button>

      

        import { Component } from '@angular/core';

        @Component({
          selector: 'popover-example',
          templateUrl: 'popover.example.html',
        })

        export class PopoverExampleComponent {
            html = '<span class="btn btn-danger waves-light">Your HTML here</span>';
        }
      

Show and Hide manually

You can use the show() and hide() methods to manually trigger a popover.

This text has an attached popover



        <span mdbPopover="Hello there! I was triggered manually" #pop="bs-mdbPopover">
          This text has an attached popover
        </span>
        <button type="button" mdbBtn color="success" class="waves-light" (click)="pop.show()" mdbWavesEffect>
          Show
        </button>
         <button type="button" mdbBtn color="warning" class="waves-light" (click)="pop.hide()" mdbWavesEffect>
          Hide
        </button>

      

Popover with image

This simple example shows how to place an image within an Angular Bootstrap popover. You can define wether you want to launch the popover on hover or on click.

Hover me Click me Hover me Click me


          <ng-template #hoverImgTemp><div [innerHtml]="hoverImg"></div></ng-template>
          <a mdbBtn color="primary" placement="bottom" [mdbPopover]="hoverImgTemp" mdbWavesEffect triggers="hover">Hover me</a>

          <ng-template #clickImgTemp><div [innerHtml]="clickImg"></div></ng-template>
          <a mdbBtn color="indigo" placement="bottom" [mdbPopover]="clickImgTemp" mdbWavesEffect triggers="click">Click me</a>

          <ng-template #smallHoverImgTemp><div [innerHtml]="smallHoverImg"></div></ng-template>
          <a mdbBtn color="dark-green" placement="bottom" [mdbPopover]="smallHoverImgTemp" mdbWavesEffect triggers="hover">Hover me</a>

          <ng-template #smallClickImgTemp><div [innerHtml]="smallClickImg"></div></ng-template>
          <a mdbBtn color="purple" placement="bottom" [mdbPopover]="smallClickImgTemp" mdbWavesEffect triggers="click">Click me</a>

        


          import { Component } from '@angular/core';
          @Component({
            selector: 'popover-image',
            templateUrl: './popover-image.component.html',
            styleUrls: ['./popover-image.component.scss']
          })
          export class PopoverImageComponent {
            public hoverImg: string = '<img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/logo/mdb192x192.jpg"/>';
            public clickImg: string = '<img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Others/documentation/img%20(30)-mini.jpg"/>';
            public smallHoverImg: string = '<img src="//placehold.it/100x50"/>';
            public smallClickImg: string = '<img src="//placehold.it/50x50"/>';
          }
