<h3>Running the example</h3>

<a href="swt_manual_setup.html">Standalone Examples Manual Setup</a> instructions.&nbsp; The executable class is
<p>The example implements its own tooltip and hover help support.&nbsp; To see
the custom tooltips in action, hover over an item or button in the UI.&nbsp;
Notice that images appear in the left-hand corner of the tooltip, unlike
standard SWT tooltips created using setToolTip() on those widgets
that natively support them.&nbsp; To see the custom hover help in action,
hover over an item or button in the UI as before until the tooltip
is displayed.&nbsp; Without moving the pointer, hit F1.&nbsp; A new Shell will
pop up with the extended hover help information for the UI element
in question.
