Tooltips should include definition keywords

Recommended Posts

Posted · Tooltips should include definition keywords

When writing plugins and initialization g-code, it's often difficult to find the names of the parameters/properties that I want to access.  MATLAB has a similar issue, which they solve by having a "what's this" tooltip on the label for each gui element that has an associated property that can be accessed from the command line.  When you select the "what's this" tooltip, it gives a short explanation of the parameter and, importantly, the parameter's name (and options list if they exist).  Cura should have a similar system.  Doesn't have to be quite that sophisticated; just including the parameter name in the tooltip explanations would be enough.
