Hi !

Well, I think this is more an eclipse plugin development question than a GEF matter, but...

I want to explain my model properties semantics and it would be great if I can do that
with tooltips in the property view. I couldn't find a setToolTip() or analog method for
PropertyDescriptor only setDescription() but it doesn't do what I want.

Well, I think that explain to the user the semantics of my model element properties is very
important for an intuitive program.. How do you do that in your GEF plugins???

Thanks in advance.

As far as I know, the description string (#setDescription) of a
PropertyDescriptor is only used for the status line, not for tool tips.
I would like it better there too, but the status line is not that bad
either.
