Advanced use of tool tips


This example widget demonstrates how to use tool tips for static and dynamic regions within a widget. It displays two blue and one red rectangle. The blue ones move every time you click on them, the red one is static. There are dynamic tool tips on the blue rectangles and a static tool tip on the red one.
