Can I, using oxy_ functions for example, add a tooltip to an element?

Hi,

We do not have such a feature but it makes sense, I added an internal issue for it and we'll update the forum thread when such an improvement becomes available.
Using Oxygen's Java API it would probably be feasible to implement something like this from a plugin.

Thanks, looking forward, this will help me make author mode more usable for our lexicographers and linguists.

Hi,

Quite late on this, but as a workaround you can display some HTML inside the element content:

You can also use the ":hover" CSS pseudo class to show the HTML documentation when the end user hovers over the element.

Experimented with adding html, but this makes the view very restless, a tooltip would be ideal here and probably in other situations as well

Perhaps I can contribute, since I am a experienced java/xml/html/css/etc. developer

Hi,

The implementation needs to be done in our own code, not with an API extension. But thanks for the offer.
We do have Java API which would allow allow an Oxygen plugin or framework customization to add a tooltip customizer:
so it is possible for someone to implement an Oxygen Java-based plugin to control the tooltip when hovering over a certain node.
If you want more details about Oxygen plugins:
