Installation

Either use the quick setup (Angular CLI) or manually add the package.

Quick Setup with Angular CLI

Angular CLI supports the addition of packages through the ng add command which executes in one step the set of otherwise individually needed commands.

    ng add @progress/kendo-angular-tooltip

Manual Setup

  1. Download and install the package.

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-angular-tooltip @progress/kendo-angular-l10n @progress/kendo-angular-popup @progress/kendo-angular-common @progress/kendo-licensing
  2. Once installed, import the TooltipModule in your application root or feature module.

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
    
    import { TooltipModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-tooltip';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    
    @NgModule({
        bootstrap:    [AppComponent],
        declarations: [AppComponent],
        imports:      [BrowserModule, BrowserAnimationsModule, TooltipModule]
    })
    export class AppModule {}
