Vaadin 8.1 Calendar event tooltip

Hi Vaadin Experts,

Please help to me how to make tooltip on a calendar event. What is the best practice?

Thanks for advice.


are you talking about the Calendar component in the Compatibility package? You should be able to show a Tooltip on the Events by adding a Description, see an example here:



Yes I’am but after setting something with the setDescription the tooltip is not displayed.

Maybe you have something else interfering? Something in your styles, maybe? Note that if your Description is an empty String, the popup won’t show at all.

I got it. Thank you your help.
