Here's a simple demonstration: The file leaflet.draw-src.js was downloaded here: https://github.com/Leaflet/Leaflet.draw/tree/master/dist

If you remove the script tag with the leaflet.draw-src.js the tooltip work just fine, but when added the leaflet.draw it gives the error Cannot read property 'popupPane' of undefined.

ps: Not using leaflet-draw is not an option

For Leaflet 1.0, you have to use Leaflet.draw leaflet-master branch, as mentioned on the repo home page:

Support for Leaflet 1.0 is in development at the leaflet-master branch.

Unfortunately, even with that version, the Tooltip issue is a known bug (Leaflet/Leaflet#4760) that is not resolved yet.

  • Two solutions: Add 'leaflet.draw-src.js' only when needed or rename in the leaflet.draw-src.js file from L.Tooltip to L.Draw.Tooltip Sep 24, 2016 at 13:30
  • Also wow, the dist folder on the leaflet-branch is 3 years old. Sep 24, 2016 at 13:32
