A tooltip is a brief, informative message that appears when a user interacts with an element. Tooltips are usually initiated in one of two ways: through a mouse-hover gesture or through a keyboard-hover gesture.

The Tooltip component follows the WAI-ARIA Tooltip Pattern.



If the children of Tooltip is a string, we wrap with in a span with tabIndex set to 0, to ensure it meets the accessibility requirements.

Note 🚨: If the Tooltip is wrapped in a functional component. Ensure you forwardRef to this component.
