How to update bootstrap popover text?

Have a nice one and hope this helps. D'uh don't forget to up vote and accept the answer :)

Jquery Code

var i = 0;
$('a#test').click(function() {
    i += 1;

        trigger: 'manual',
        placement: 'right',
        content: function() {
           var message = "Count is" + i;
             return message;



<a id="test">Click me</a>
