I would like a Widget::copy_tooltip(text), similar to Widget::copy_label. In my case, I'm writing language bindings for a garbage collected langauge and I have to protect the tooltip from the GC even though I've handed the text to FLTK. With copy_label, I set the label and let GC reclaim my copy of the label text. Not a big deal but it would my life a little bit easier and one less thing to remember.

Good idea. This would also apply to FLTK 1.3.

Should we post another STR for FLTK 1.3 ?

I'll try to make a patch for this.. should be easy.
If it looks OK, maybe we can sneak it into 1.3.x.

Seems all we need to do is add a flag to Fl_Widget.H
to implement this.. there's plenty of bits available (17-28).

Just realized this is a 2.x request.

Albrecht: I've added STR#2466, the 1.3.x equiv of this STR.
Will follow up there.

Note: STR #2010 offers a 2.x patch for this same issue.
