Sidebar Tooltips

Hi everyone. I’m not sure if this is a bug report or if I am doing something silly in my code.

I am trying to add a custom tooltip to a sidebar tree item and for some reason it does not display. If the panel is narrow enough, a tooltip will show containing the text in descriptive text property that is cut off. However, when explicitly setting the tree item tooltip shouldn’t this be overridden? For example, in the code below, shouldn’t “This is a parent.” always display as a tooltip?

Hello Jason,

Looking in Nova 2.1, it appears this might be a bug with the tooltip property not being properly translated from the extension host process to Nova itself. I’ll file an issue in our tracker.

Thanks for taking a look Logan!
