Line Break in Marker Tooltip [message #307603] Sat, 26 August 2006 11:45 Go to next message

Hi,

I am trying to do some simple formatting with line breaks "\n" and
spaces for some text I want to display in my markers tooltip. I tried to
add a "\n" in the message for the marker but when the message is
displayed in the tooltip, the "\n" just disappeared, not leading to a
line break.

Is this kind of formating possible? Or even better, is it possible to
supply simple HTML for the markers tooltip?

Thanks in advance,

Sascha

So... is that it? "No"? Rolling Eyes

But I've seen multiple lines in markers tool tips. How are they made then?

Here's an approach that worked for me:

blog.pdark.de/2009/12/26/swt-tree-and-tooltips/

I was able to use the wrap() method described in that post to format a string that when passed to setToolTipText() on a Control would do an intelligent word wrap. It also can handle \n characters. You have to include the commons-lang jar in your classpath in order to use this.
