Render Props

This is a legacy API for compatibility with v1.x users moving to Popper v2. We recommend using the usePopper Hook in new code.

The Manager component is a simple wrapper that needs to surround all the other react-popper components in order to make them communicate with each others.

The Popper component accepts the properties children, placement, modifiers and strategy.

children: ({|
  ref: (?HTMLElement) => void,
  style: { [string]: string | number },
  placement: ?Placement,
  isReferenceHidden: ?boolean,
  hasPopperEscaped: ?boolean,
  update: () => void,
  forceUpdate: () => void,
  arrowProps: {
    ref: (?HTMLElement) => void,
    style: { [string]: string | number },
|}) => Node

A function (render prop) that takes as argument an object containing the following properties:

  • ref: used to retrieve the React refs of the popper element.
  • style: contains the necessary CSS styles (React CSS properties) which are computed by Popper.js to correctly position the popper element.
  • placement: describes the placement of your popper after Popper.js has applied all the modifiers that may have flipped or altered the originally provided placement property. You can use this to alter the style of the popper and or of the arrow according to the definitive placement. For instance, you can use this property to orient the arrow to the right direction.
  • isReferenceHidden: a boolean signifying the reference element is fully clipped and hidden from view.
  • hasPopperEscaped: a boolean signifying the popper escapes the reference element's boundary (and so it appears detached).
  • update: a function you can ask Popper to recompute your tooltip's position . It will directly call the Popper#update method.
  • arrowProps: an object, containing style and ref properties that are identical to the ones provided as the first and second arguments of children, but relative to the arrow element. The style property contains left and top offset values, which are used to center the arrow within the popper. These values can be merged with further custom styling and positioning. See the demo for an example.


innerRef?: (?HTMLElement) => void

Function that can be used to obtain popper reference


placement?: PopperJS$Placement;

One of the accepted placement values listed in the Popper.js documentation.
Your popper is going to be placed according to the value of this property.
Defaults to bottom.


Describes the positioning strategy to use. By default, it is absolute, which in the simplest cases does not require repositioning of the popper. If your reference element is in a fixed container, use the fixed strategy. Read More


modifiers?: PopperJS$Modifiers;

An object containing custom settings for the Popper.js modifiers.
You can use this property to override their settings or to inject your custom ones.
