ColumnLabelProvider SWT tooltip problem

Hi guys,

i am using eclipse 3.3, I have created a class that extends ColumnLabelProvider and have added this to a TreeViewerColumn.

The getText and getImage work fine, but the getToolTipText(), never seems to get called. I also have getToolTipImage() returning a blank image.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I had to add the TreeViewer enable ColumnViewerToolTipSupport for the TreeViewer

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
