<title>SWT - Hover Help Example</title>
<h2>SWT standalone example - Hover Help</h2>
The Hover Help example shows how to implement custom tooltips and hover help support
on various SWT controls including Buttons, TableItems, ToolItems and TreeItems.
To see the custom tooltips in action, hover over an item or button in the UI, and
notice that images appear in the left-hand corner of the tooltip.
To see the custom hover help in action, hover over an item or button in the UI until
the tooltip is displayed. Then, without moving the mouse, press <strong>F1</strong> and a new
Shell will be shown with the extended hover help information for the UI element.
