Detailed Description

Status tips can be set on a widget using the setStatusTip() function. They are shown in the status bar when the mouse cursor enters the widget. For example:

def __init__(self, parent):
    QMainWindow.__init__(self, parent)

    myWidget = QWidget()
    myWidget.setStatusTip(tr("This is my widget."))

    setCentralWidget(myWidget)
    ...

Status tips can also be set on actions using the setStatusTip() function:

def __init__(self, parent):
    QMainWindow.__init__(self, parent)
    fileMenu = menuBar().addMenu(tr("File"))

    Act = QAction(self.tr("&New"), self)
    Act.setStatusTip(tr("Create a new file."))
    fileMenu.addAction(Act)
    ...

Finally, status tips are supported for the item view classes through the StatusTipRole enum value.
