SwiftUI Tooltip

Workflow checks Release version License

"Buy Me A Coffee"

This package provides you with an easy way to show tooltips over any SwiftUI view, since Apple does not provide one.


Getting started

You can add this package to your project using Swift Package Manager. Enter following url when adding it to your project package dependencies:


We are using semver for versioning, so we would recomment selecting "Up to next major relase" option for this package.

After you added the package, all you need to do is import it and you can add a tooltip to any SwiftUI View in that file!


Step 1

⭐️ Start this repo! ⭐️

Basic use case

As the first example, the Text view is provided as the tooltip content and it's attached to the other Text view. Below you can see the example of code that is required to create the tooltip and the result you see on the screen.


import SwiftUITooltip
Text("Say something nice...")
    .tooltip(.bottom) {
        Text("Something nice!")


example 1

Controlling whether the tooltip is present

You can cantrol whether the tooltip is presented or not through the _ enabled: Binding<Bool> argument. Below you can see an example of how this would look like.

@State var tooltipVisible = false
Button("Toggle tooltip") {
    self.tooltipVisible = !self.tooltipVisible
Text("I'm the confusing text.")
    .tooltip(self.tooltipVisible) {
        Text("I'm the text explaining the confusing text.")

Using custom configuration to add a jumping animation

Second example shows you how you can add jumping animation to the tooltip from the first example.


import SwiftUI
import SwiftUITooltip

struct SwiftUIView: View {
    var tooltipConfig = DefaultTooltipConfig()
    init() {
        self.tooltipConfig.enableAnimation = true
        self.tooltipConfig.animationOffset = 10
        self.tooltipConfig.animationTime = 1
    var body: some View {
        Text("Say something nice...")
            .tooltip(.bottom, config: tooltipConfig) {
                Text("Something nice!")
