class TGToolTip: public TGCompositeFrame


A tooltip can be a one or multiple lines help text that is displayed
in a window when the mouse cursor overs a widget, without clicking
it. A small box appears with suplementary information regarding the
item being hovered over.                                             //

A multiline tooltip can be created by inserting a new-line character
"\n" in the tooltip string. For example:

 fButton->SetToolTipText("Go to the ROOT page\n ( //

Function documentation

TGToolTip(const TGWindow *p, const TGFrame *f, const char *text, Long_t delayms)
 Create a tool tip. P is the tool tips parent window (normally
 fClient->GetRoot(), f is the frame to which the tool tip is associated,
 text is the tool tip one-liner and delayms is the delay in ms before
 the tool tip is shown.
TGToolTip(const TGWindow *p, const TBox *box, const char *text, Long_t delayms)
 Create a tool tip. P is the tool tips parent window (normally
 fClient->GetRoot(), box is the area to which the tool tip is associated,
 text is the tool tip one-liner and delayms is the delay in ms before
 the tool tip is shown. When using this ctor with the box argument
 you have to use Reset(const TVirtualPad *parent).
TGToolTip(const TBox* b, const char* text, Long_t delayms)
 Create a tool tip in the parent window gClient->GetRoot(),
 box is the area to which the tool tip is associated,
 text is the tool tip one-liner and delayms is the delay in ms before
 the tool tip is shown. When using this ctor with the box argument
 you have to use Reset(const TVirtualPad *parent).
 Delete a tool tip object.
void DrawBorder()
 Draw border of tool tip window.
void Show(Int_t x, Int_t y)
 Show tool tip window.
void Hide()
 Hide tool tip window. Use this method to hide the tool tip in a client
void Reset(const TVirtualPad* parent)
 Reset tool tip popup delay timer. Use this method to activate tool tip
 in a client class.
void Reset(const TVirtualPad* parent)
 Reset tool tip popup delay timer. Use this method to activate tool tip
 in a client class. Use this method for graphics objects drawn in a
 TCanvas, also the tool tip must have been created with the ctor
 taking the TBox as argument.
Bool_t HandleTimer(TTimer* t)
 If tool tip delay timer times out show tool tip window.
void SetText(const char* new_text)
 Set new tool tip text.
void SetDelay(Long_t delayms)
 Set delay in milliseconds.
void SetPosition(Int_t x, Int_t y)
 Set popup position within specified frame (as specified in the ctor).
 To get back default behaviour (in the middle just below the designated
 frame) set position to -1,-1.
const TGString * GetText()
 Get the tool tip text.
TGToolTip(const TGToolTip& )
TGToolTip& operator=(const TGToolTip& )
