How would I add a tooltip to all datepickers in a project?

I have a large ASPNET Core project that contains a lot of date picker input fields.  I have been requested to add a tooltip that displays the selected date in the users Long Date format to all date fields.  Is it possible to do this globally?  or would I have to do add a tooltip to each field?  An chance you could provide a coded example as I am new to web development?
Thanks in advance

Hi Allan, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We have checked with your query. We suggest to use “htmlAttributes” API to set the tooltip for the DatePicker component initially. By using this API, you can add custom attribute to the DatePicker component. Please refer the below code example. 
@{ IDictionary<string, object> htmlAttr = new Dictionary<string, object>(); 
    string value = "hi"; 
    htmlAttr.Add("title", value);     
<ej-date-picker id="DatePick1" html-attributes="htmlAttr></ej-date-picker> 
Also, if you are using multiple datepicker in the page, you can achieve your requirement (“I have been requested to add a tooltip that displays the selected date in the users Long Date format to all date fields”) by using our “change” event in your application. This will update your tooltip text whenever the value changes in DatePicker component. 
We suggest you to use ej.format() in your sample that will used to convert the date value as the desired format. Then you have to store this date value in the private variable and set this value to the “htmlAttributes” API by using the below code example. 
  <ej-date-picker id="DatePick2" change="onChange"></ej-date-picker> 
  <ej-date-picker id="DatePick3" change="onChange"></ej-date-picker> 
  <ej-date-picker id="DatePick4" change="onChange"></ej-date-picker> 
         function onChange(args) 
             var date = ej.format(this.model.value, "dddd, d MMMM, yy", this.model.locale); 
             this.option("htmlAttributes", { title: date }); 
For your convenience, we have prepared the sample based on your requirement. Please get the sample from the below location.
