Popover Function – Twitter Bootstrap

Just a quick post on how easy it is to implement a popover with twitter bootsrap:

JavaScript:

//Create tooltips for login/signup forms
function create_tooltips(){
 
    //Create vars
    var titles = ['test title']
    var contents = ['test content'];
    var fields = ['#user_email'];
 
    //Loop through each field and assign tooltip
    for(var i = 0; i < fields.length; i++){
 
        //Create vars
        var field = $(fields[i]);
        var title = titles[i];
        var content = contents[i];
 
        //Ensure field found
        if(field){
 
            //Create popover
            $(field).popover(
                {
                    animation: true,
                    placement: 'right',
                    selector: false,
                    trigger: 'hover',
                    title: title,
                    content: content,
                    delay: 0
                });
        }
    }
}
