tooltips for menu items Paul Hahn 08:15 Aug 12 top right image
Is there a way to have tooltips for one (all) menu items in an Fl_Menu_? More specifically, I have an instance of Fl_Choice (parent class is Fl_Menu_) and I would like to show tooltips for the selection items.

Is subclassing Fl_Choice and doing the work to implement some kind of "tooltip" in its handle() method override really the only way?

If it is, any suggestion on that implementation so the "tooltips" look and operate consistent with the usual FLTK widget tooltips?
