Tooltip not showing

For help with anything that CEGUI doesn't offer straight out-of-the-box, e.g.:
- Implementation of new features, such as new Core classes, widgets, WindowRenderers, etc. ...
- Modification of any existing features for specific purposes
- Integration of CEGUI in new engines or frameworks and writing of new plugins (Renderer, Parser, ...) or modules

That's one way of doing it, though is not the way you want to be doing it for most 'normal' cases. What you probably really wanted was this:

Code: Select all

CEGUI::System::getSingleton().setTooltip("TaharezLook/Tooltip");


This creates a 'shared' tool-tip which the system will use for all widgets. What you have done is perfectly valid, though is intended for cases where you want a particular widget to have a special custom tooltip.
