Tooltip in UI template

Hello,

I would like to have a tooltip that appears when the mouse is on a row of a table. The text of the tooltip is in row.description.

I have tried several solutions with hover but I have not managed to use it with ng-bind.

Here is a simplified example of the template.

[{"id":"a88f9b78.58b098","type":"inject","z":"e97b66ab.65ee18","name":"","topic":"","payload":"[{\"name\":\"Default_temperature\",\"value\":false,\"description\":\"this is a Description for Default_temperature\"},{\"name\":\"Default_pressure\",\"value\":true,\"description\":\"Description for Default_pressure\"},{\"name\":\"Default_humidity\",\"value\":true,\"description\":\"Description for Default_humidity\"},{\"name\":\"Default_temperature_high\",\"value\":false,\"description\":\"Description for Default_temperature_high\"},{\"name\":\"Default_temperature_low\",\"value\":true,\"description\":\"Description for Default_temperature_low\"},{\"name\":\"Default_other\",\"value\":false,\"description\":\"Description for other defaults\"}]","payloadType":"json","repeat":"","crontab":"","once":false,"onceDelay":0.1,"x":310,"y":280,"wires":[["ebc6edce.1e071"]]},{"id":"ebc6edce.1e071","type":"ui_template","z":"e97b66ab.65ee18","group":"84b6ba09.b4ffd8","name":"UI template for default","order":2,"width":"7","height":"9","format":"<table id=\"Default\" border=\"1\">\n <tr>\n <th>Name</th> \n <th>Value</th>\n </tr>\n <tbody>\n <tr ng-repeat=\"row in msg.payload\">\n <td>{{row.name}}</td>\n <td ng-bind=\"row.value\" style=\"{{row.value ?

This is an HTML question more than a Node-RED one.

You can create a simple tooltip for all browsers by adding the title attribute to any tag. The text you provide to that attribute will appear as a tooltip.

Only if you need to do clever things like formatting, html content, etc do you need something like the bootstrap extension.
