Hi,

I have a website that is mainly using angular JS and I need to create a directive to allow me to display tooltips on some of my html elements.
Can you assist in helping me create this?

Many thanks

<!DOCTYPE  HTML>
<html>
 <head>
 <script src="lib/angular-1.3.0/angular.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var myApp = angular.module("myApp", []);
myApp.controller("MyCtrl", function ($scope)
{
    $scope.items = [
                            { name: "item 01", tooltip: "This is item 01 tooltip!"},
                    { name: "item 02", tooltip: "This is item 02 tooltip!"},
                    { name: "item 03", tooltip: "This is item 03 tooltip!"},
                    { name: "item 04", tooltip: "This is item 04 tooltip!"},
                    { name: "item 05", tooltip: "This is item 05 tooltip!"}
                ];
});
myApp.directive('tooltip', function ()
      {
          return {
                      restrict:'A',
                      link: function(lscope, element, attrs)
                    {
                                if (element) {
                                   (element).attr('title',attrs.tooltip);
                                    attrs.$set('tooltip-placement', 'right');
                                    attrs.$set('tooltip-trigger', 'focus');
                                };
                    }
    };
}
);

</script>
</head>
 <body>
<div ng-app="myApp">
