No script command to retrieve control tooltip exists
Feedback, WishlistPublic


There exists commands to set the tooltip of a control or listbox item:
ctrlSetTooltip, lbSetTooltip

No command currently exists to retrieve that same tooltip.
There should be a ctrlTooltip and an lbTooltip command to give us this string.

Additional Information

Currently my workaround is to assign a global variable to hold my new tooltips, and I can get the original text via getText(configFile >> "mydialogconfig" >> "controls" >> "myButton" >> "tooltip") but this is cumbersome.

Just to confirm, there is tvTooltip command, so obviously someone thought it was useful to have a getter. If not for anything else, do it for the sake of consistency!
