SAP CRM Web UI - dropdown field's tooltip not correct in display mode

I have a problem, in CRM WebUI I have a view with several fields, some of them are dropdowns (by GET_P - fieldtype ->picklist).

As you know there is an option to edit the tooltip in the GET_P when property=tooltip.

in edit mode it works fine, but in display mode - the tooltip is the field's value and not what I put in the GET_P.

I should mention that this only happens for fieldtype picklist (not for checkbox, or input etc.)

Hi Shaked,

It is not possible to give a custom tool tip if you have created your field through GET_P , however if you create the dropdown via thtml code tag : dropdownListBox , there you have an attribute as tooltip.

I also would like to know why you need tool-tip for a pick-list. In pick list there are multiple values, so how would you define for which value this tool tip would be applicable.

Best Regards,

Check Note 2647010 - Tooltip set through V-getter is ignored when picklist is in display mode

I noticed that you also created an Incident for this issue and eventually developer created a new note to resolve this error.

I am glad your issue is resolved now.
