Custom tooltip extension for pyside

Custom Tooltips for PySide

To use you will need to subclass Tooltip or TooltipWithArrow and implement the getWidget function::

>>> class MyTooltip(Tooltip):
>>> def getWidget(self):
>>> return MyQWidget()

getWidget should return the widget that you wish to be displayed as a tooltip.

Your tooltip will need a few parameters to initialize::

>>> my_tooltip = MyTooltip(hoverable_widget, list_of_positionings, main_window, gap=7)

**hoverable_widget** is the widget that will trigger the tooltip.

**list_of_positionings** is a list of tuples: (TooltipPositioning, TooltipAlignment).
**TooltipPositioning** can be one of Tooltips Macros: Tooltip.LEFT_POSITIONING, Tooltip.TOP_POSITIONING, Tooltip.RIGHT_POSITIONING or Tooltip.BOTTOM_POSITIONING
Positionings should be TooltipWithArrow.*_POSITIONING if you chose to subclass TooltipWithArrow.

**TooltipAlignment** should be one of the functions included in TooltipAlignment.

Therefore, a **list_of_positioning** could be: [(TooltipWithArrow.RIGHT_POSITIONING, alignToTop), (TooltipWithArrow.LEFT_POSITIONING, alignToTop)].

A Tooltip will always try to use the Positioning you chose in order and will not display at all if there is no room in the screen for it.

**main_window** is the window in which your tooltip will display. It is used to calculate the positioning and alignment.

**gap** is the space in pixels between the **hoverable_widget** and the **Tooltip**.
