[QF-Test] Recording Tooltip Text

  • Subject: [QF-Test] Recording Tooltip Text

I am developing QF-Test Suites for simulation software that, among other things, simulates air missions. When an air mission fails, the user can mouse-over the GUI element that represents the mission and a tooltip will appear that details the reason the mission failed. I would like to be able to fetch the text from this tooltip to include it in our test-reports, but my direct attempt at doing so (creating a fetch-text node for the tooltip component) resulted in an exception stating that: This operation is not possible for a component of class 'javax.swing.JToolTip'. Is there an "outside-the-box" method for extracting text from components when this issue is encountered or will this be impossible to do.

Thank you,
