Position Floating Elements With Floating UI Library – Floating Vue

A Vue.js component that uses Floating UI Library to position floating elements like tooltips, popovers, dropdowns, and much more.

Basic usage:

1. Import and register the Floating Vue.

import FloatingVue from 'floating-vue'
// Stylesheet
import 'floating-vue/dist/style.css'

2. Attach a basic tooltip to the element using the v-tooltip directive.

<button v-tooltip="'This Is A Tooltip'"></button>

3. Or using the VTooltip directive.

  <a>Hover Me</a>
  <template #popper>
    Tooltip Content

4. Enable an element to toggle a dropdown.

  <button>Click me</button>
  <template #popper>
    <input class="tooltip-content" v-model="msg" placeholder="Dropdowncontent" />
      {{ msg }}
    <ExampleComponent char="=" />

5. All default configs.

Vue.use(FloatingVue, {
  // options
// Disable popper components
disabled: false,
// Default position offset along main axis (px)
distance: 5,
// Default position offset along cross axis (px)
skidding: 0,
// Default container where the tooltip will be appended
container: 'body',
// Element used to compute position and size boundaries
boundary: undefined,
// Skip delay & CSS transitions when another popper is shown, so that the popper appear to instanly move to the new position.
instantMove: false,
// Auto destroy tooltip DOM nodes (ms)
disposeTimeout: 5000,
// Triggers on the popper itself

    // Close tooltip on click on tooltip target
    hideTriggers: events => [...events, 'click'],
    // Delay (ms)
    delay: {
      show: 200,
      hide: 0,
    // Update popper on content resize
    handleResize: false,
    // Enable HTML content in directive
