ToolTip on Table cells, Linux [message #1811236] Thu, 29 August 2019 09:43 Go to next message

I'm working in Linux env
For my application, I would like to show tooltips on table cells when the user hovers the mouse over them and I have used Table widget to create the table

I know that the tooltips are only shown if the text does not fit into the row. If the text does fit in the row, no tooltip is shown.

But this behaviour is not exactly happening in my case when I'm adding a row with a column text large enough. However in Windows env, It is working fine.

please help me out if I can explicitly enable the tooltip to show for Table cell or set it myself based on the text added?

Fancier tool tips, e.g., even with HTML text can also be provided by label providers. You can investigate how to use org.eclipse.jface.text.AbstractHoverInformationControlManager and could look at this for inspiration:
