Does anyone know of a way to create a ToolTip without support of Swing? Currently I just have a label below all of the Tools that shows the status, but would like more of a true ToolTip feel.
Thanks

If you mean this small yellow popups that are coming out when you hold a mouse over a certain button for a while ?
Then, catch the mouse-entered event, and if mouse-exited event doesn't occur in a certain amount of time, you pop up the window with some text. When mouse exits, you close the window. To get rid of standart window look&feel, use Window class, not Frame.
