3.8.1 Tooltips for output panes

To implement tooltips in an output-pane , call display-tooltip via a :motion gesture in the pane's input-model . The tooltip text might depend on the cursor position or, in the case of a pinboard-layout , on the pinboard object under the cursor.

See the example in examples/capi/graphics/pinboard-help.lisp .
