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:

MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent)
    : QMainWindow(parent)
{

    QWidget *myWidget = new QWidget;
    myWidget->setStatusTip(tr("This is my widget."));

    setCentralWidget(myWidget);            ...
}

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

MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent)
    : QMainWindow(parent)
{            QMenu *fileMenu = menuBar()->addMenu(tr("File"));

    QAction *newAct = new QAction(tr("&New"), this);
    newAct->setStatusTip(tr("Create a new file."));
    fileMenu->addAction(newAct);            ...
}

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