      Description

      Tooltips should not grab mouse events.

      There was a discussion on the JavaFX mailing list, the conclusion was that tooltips should not grab mouse events.

      This was approved by Richard Bair. You can see the important fragments of the discussion below:

      That sounds good.

      Thanks

      What about if someone would like a tooltip to grab mouse events on some specific scenario?

      Should I split these into 2 issues? One saying: "Tooltips should not grab mouse events" and the other one: "add setMouseTransparent(boolean isTransparent) method to Tooltip"

      There should just be an issue saying "Tooltips should not grab mouse events", i think.

      Do you want me to file the issue?

      Would it be: Add support for setMouseTransparent(boolean isTransparent) to Tooltip. The default behaviour should be that the tooltip is transparent to mouse events (doesn't grab any mouse events), that is default should be setMouseTransparent(true).

      Thanks, best regards,

      Hi Richard,

      I don't think their is such an issue (not totally sure). Hence the more or less related issue that was created by Pavel.

      Thanks, best regards,
