Hi All,

Is it possible to change the font for tooltip text? How about other
tooltip properties like the delay time for a tooltip to popup?

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris,

There is not support for customizing tooltip attributes like these, though
I've found at least one request for something similar (see
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=73228 ). If you think that
these are important features to have then you can log a Feature Request(s)
with Platform - SWT.

That being said, you _can_ achieve any of these affects on your own if you
implement fake tooltips, as demonstrated in
http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.swt.sni ppets/src/org/eclipse/swt/snippets/Snippet125.java?rev=HEAD& amp;content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup .
