Hi,

I am trying to set the font of a ControlDecoration's tooltip to the dialog font, so that it resizes automatically if the user changes the font size. So far I have not been able to see how to access the tooltip to apply the dialog font to it.

For a non decoration tooltip I can instantiate the tooltip myself and set it's font, but I cannot see how to extract the tooltip from a ControlDecoration

This is the code that I have at the moment

public void setDecoration(String myMessage, String myTooltipType) {
ControlDecoration controlDecoration = new ControlDecoration(myControl, myStyle);
controlDecoration.setDescriptionText(myMessage);
FieldDecoration fieldDecoration = FieldDecorationRegistry.getDefault().getFieldDecoration(myTooltipType);
controlDecoration.setImage(fieldDecoration.getImage());
}

Thanks
