Display beautiful tooltips in Asp .Net MVC

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of integrating the Tooltipster jQuery plugin into a .NET MVC application. We will create a simple view using a Modal class with fields for Name, Email, and Age, and add tooltips to display information about each field. Tooltipster is a powerful and customizable tooltip plugin that enhances user experience by providing interactive tooltips.

Step 1: Create a .NET MVC Project

If you don't have a .NET MVC project already, create a new one in Visual Studio. Name it as per your preference.

Step 2: Create a Modal Class

Let's create a Modal class to represent the data we want to collect. In your Models folder, add a new class named UserModal.cs with the following code:

public class UserModal
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public string Email { get; set; }
    public int Age { get; set; }

Step 3: Create a Controller and View

Now, let's create a controller and a view for our UserModal.

Controller: Right-click on the Controllers folder and add a new controller named UserController.cs. In this controller, create an action method to display the view:

public class UserController : Controller
    public ActionResult CreateUser()
        return View();

View: In the Views folder, create a folder named User and inside it, add a view named CreateUser.cshtml. This view will be responsible for rendering the form.

Step 4: Add Tooltipster jQuery Plugin

To integrate Tooltipster, you need to include its CSS and JavaScript files in your project. You can either download them or use a Content Delivery Network (CDN). Add the following lines to your _Layout.cshtml file within the <head> section:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/css/tooltipster.bundle.min.css">
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/js/tooltipster.bundle.min.js"></script>

Step 5: Create the Form with Tooltips

In the CreateUser.cshtml view, create a form with fields for Name, Email, and Age. Add Tooltipster tooltips to display additional information for each field.

@model YourNamespace.Models.UserModal

    ViewBag.Title = "Create User";

    <div class="form-group">
        @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Name)
        @Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.Name, new { @class = "form-control", title = "Enter your full name" })
    <div class="form-group">
        @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Email)
        @Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.Email, new { @class = "form-control", title = "Enter your email address" })
    <div class="form-group">
        @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Age)
        @Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.Age, new { @class = "form-control", title = "Enter your age" })

@section Scripts {
        $(document).ready(function () {

In this code, we are using title attribute for each input field to provide tooltips.
