      Description

      Hi,

      Can we have a continuation tooltips for JLists and JTrees as in here:
      http://weblogs.java.net/blog/timboudreau/archive/2006/08/continuation_to.html

      [N.B. be aware that the issue with Mac OS is solved in netbeans implementation.]

      I think we need to change it little bit to be the same in Windows folder
      explorer i.e. no need to have two tooltips (in each side), one is enough which
      covers the whole line. That is because it causes a lot of problems in matching
      the ends of the row especially in right-to-left application (I have post a
      comment in Boudreau Blog but no response)

        • changed summary to include JXTable
        • added link to forum discussion

        The code is not usable as-is for a couple of reasons:
        todo: not CO aware (at least not in toggle)
        todo: usability decision - competing with tooltips
        todo: integration in swingx - uses getValue() - clashes with getString()
        todo: no table support
        todo: visual integration, LAF dependent

        SwingX has experimental code which uses the tooltip in RendererIssues (test src
        hierarchy, package renderer) for JXList, JXTable, JXTree (with varying degree of
        completeness)

        • is CO aware
        • no competition, developer decides about role of tooltip (win way)
        • uses SwingX content access

        needs more thinking, so postponed

        changed sub-component - just my personal preference to hook the
        cross-collection-component issues to table
