Hi all!

I would like to display a tooltip on a button explaining why the button
is greyed out. But it seems that tooltips are not displayed the button
is not enabled.

Is there some kind of workaround for this?

Thanks,

:-) Camilla

Not really. This is the correct Windows platform behavior (despite the fact
that it is unwanted).

If you use a Form Layout, you can put a label behind the
item that is disabled and use that as the launching point of a tooltip.

Worked for me
