Hello all,

does anybody know, how to change the tooltip in a table viewer.
The build in automatically appears if the text is longer than the displayed
table cell. My problem is, the text could be longer than the screen, so the
tooltip on one line is not very useful.
I tried to add an MousetrackListener to the table of the TableViewer but I
haven't got any event.

What is possible and what do I wrong.

Thank you
Uwe

I think I found the right snippet, to catch the low level SWT.mouseHover
event.
Thank you
