Creating a custom tooltip in React Quill Editor involves using the Quill editor's Quill.register method to register a custom module. This custom module can then be used to show the tooltip when certain events are triggered, such as hovering over a specific element or text. Below is an example of how to create a custom tooltip in React Quill Editor:

  1. Install React Quill if you haven't already:
npm install react-quill
  1. Create a new React component for the custom tooltip:
import React, { useEffect, useRef } from 'react'; import Quill from 'react-quill'; import 'react-quill/dist/quill.snow.css'; // Define your custom tooltip component const CustomTooltip = () => { const tooltipRef = useRef(null); useEffect(() => { // Set up your tooltip behavior here // For example, show/hide the tooltip on hover or based on certain events // You can use external libraries or custom logic to handle tooltip behavior }, []); return <div ref={tooltipRef}>This is a custom tooltip!</div>; }; // Register the custom module Quill.register('modules/customTooltip', CustomTooltip);
  1. Use the custom module in your React Quill Editor component:
import ReactQuill from 'react-quill'; import 'react-quill/dist/quill.snow.css'; const MyQuillEditor = () => { const modules = { toolbar: true, customTooltip: true, // Enable the custom module }; return <ReactQuill modules={modules} />; }; export default MyQuillEditor;

In this example, we created a CustomTooltip component that will serve as our custom tooltip. Inside the CustomTooltip component, you can define the behavior and appearance of your tooltip using CSS or other libraries.

Then, we registered the CustomTooltip component as a custom module using Quill.register. The module name is set to 'modules/customTooltip', and this name will be used to enable the custom module in the React Quill Editor by specifying customTooltip: true in the modules prop.

Keep in mind that this example demonstrates the basic setup for creating a custom tooltip in React Quill Editor. Depending on your specific use case and desired tooltip behavior, you may need to adjust the implementation and styling to suit your needs. Additionally, you can use various tooltip libraries or custom logic inside the CustomTooltip component to handle the tooltip's behavior and appearance.
