Description

Warning

This method is deprecated in PyGTK 2.12 and above

Tooltips are the messages that appear next to a widget when the mouse pointer is held over it for a short amount of time. They are especially helpful for adding more verbose descriptions of things such as buttons in a toolbar. An individual tooltip belongs to a group of tooltips. A group is created with a call to the gtk.Tooltips() constructor. Every tooltip in the group can then be turned off with a call to the disable() method and enabled with the enable() method. To assign a tip to a particular gtk.Widget, use the set_tip() method.

Note

Tooltips can only be set on widgets which have their own X window. To check if a widget has its own window use widget.flags()&gtk.NO_WINDOW. To add a tooltip to a widget that doesn't have its own window, place the widget inside a gtk.EventBox and add a tooltip to the eventbox instead.

The default appearance of all tooltips in a program is determined by the current theme that the user has selected. Information about the tooltip (if any) associated with an arbitrary widget can be retrieved using the gtk.tooltips_data_get() function.

The set_tips() method creates a tooltip for the specified widget. The text specified by tooltip_text will be displayed when the mouse pointer pauses over widget if the tooltips are enabled..

gtk.Tooltips.force_window

    def force_window()

Warning

This method is deprecated in PyGTK 2.12 and above

The force_window() method ensures that the window used for displaying the given tooltips is created. Applications should never have to call this function, since PyGTK takes care of this.
