Detailed Description

Status tips can be set on a widget using the QWidget::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."));


Widget with status tip.

Status tips can also be set on actions using the QAction::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."));

Action with status tip.

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