How do I control tab tooltip text for a custom editor? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've implemented a fileless custom editor in VSX 2008. The objects edited in the editor are in memory and are not backed by a file.
    I use unique strings as the document monikers. 
    The tab at the top of my custom editor has a tooltip which shows the moniker, I would like to change that, how? How can I supply my own text for the tooltip?

  • Hi Rotem,

    As I know, the tab is not a part of editor, VSX doesn't expose any way to specify the tooltip of the tab.
    I'm sorry for that.
