Detailed Description

The QStatusTipEvent class provides an event that is used to show messages in a status bar.

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."));
setCentralWidget(myWidget);
...
}

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."));
fileMenu->addAction(newAct);
...
}

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