We'd like to use the same tooltip control that Eclipse uses in our own RCP application. I'm talking about the one that shows up when you hover your mouse over a member variable etc in the Eclipse Java text editor (screenshot below).

I want to show these when hovering over controls etc. We specifically need the ability to allow the user to select and copy text from the tooltip.

Does anybody know how I can tap into this functionality outside of a text editor?

Aren't JFace-Tooltips enough? See
