It is possible to specify the tooltip position ?
I have some realy big tooltips and I want to positionate them outside my window.
I have also a solution with JWindow, but I want "to remain" on toolltips(simplicity)

What about creating a status bar at the bottom to display your tool tips? Very easy to program. Just create mouse listener using enter / exit mouse methods to display the appropriate message.

see the following link: http://builder.com.com/5100-6370_14-5185994.html?tag=e606

I just removed all of the tool tips from my gui and replaced them with the status messages and it is a great improvement.
