How To Use

Import qwebtip’s main model, qweburltip and set it to override one of your widget’s tooltips with some URL.

The next time you build your application and hover over that widget, a URL box is displayed with that URL, instead.

from qwebtip import qweburltip

url = ''
qweburltip.override_tool_tip(QtWidgets.QLabel('Some label'), url)

How To Use - Customizing

Setting a custom tooltip size

from qwebtip import qweburltip

url = ''
   QtWidgets.QLabel('Some label'),

Opening the URL at a specific header section

url = ''
       'Method Documentation',
