Gtk2::Tooltips(3) wrapper for GtkTooltips




tooltips = Gtk2::Tooltips->new

hash_ref = $tooltips->data_get ($widget)

  • $widget (Gtk2::Widget)

Returns a hash reference with the keys: tooptips, widget, tip_text, and tip_private.

tooltips is the GtkTooltips group that this tooltip belongs to. widget is the GtkWidget that this tooltip data is associated with. tip_text is a string containing the tooltip message itself.

tip_private is a string that is not shown as the default tooltip. Instead, this message may be more informative and go towards forming a context-sensitive help system for your application.




$tooltips->set_tip ($widget, $tip_text, $tip_private=undef)

  • $widget (Gtk2::Widget)
  • $tip_text (string)
  • $tip_private (scalar)
