Place tooltip on a fixed position even when window resizes RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the best way to achieve so that the tooltip stays on a fixed position (as shown in the picture) even if the window resizes? Right now if the browser is zoomed 125% it's fine, but the moment it resizes, the positioning gets lost. Not sure if it's possible via CSS only or if we need to use Javascript.

  • Hi Terriyaki,

    You could use some CSS style to make tooltip in a fixed postion, here is a demo for your reference:

    <style type="text/css">
    .tooltip {
      display: inline-block;
      border-bottom: 1px dotted black;
    .tooltip .tooltiptext {
      width: 120px;
      background-color: #555;
      color: #fff;
      text-align: center;
      border-radius: 6px;
      padding: 5px 0;
      bottom: 125%;
      opacity: 0;
      transition: opacity 0.3s;
    .tooltip .tooltiptext::after {
      content: "";
      border-width: 5px;
      border-style: solid;
      border-color: #555 transparent transparent transparent;
    .tooltip:hover .tooltiptext {
      opacity: 1;
    <p>Move the mouse over the text below:</p>
    <div class="tooltip">Hover over me
      <span class="tooltiptext">Tooltip text</span>

    Resize the window to less:

    Zoom up to 150%:



    Best Regards
