BarCommand Tooltips - generating dynamic text

Is there an event I can catch just before a tooltip gets displayed to dynamically generate the tooltip text? We generate tooltip text dynamically for our undo/redo toolbar buttons. The tooltip text tells you what will get undone (or redone). I guess I could rely on the auto update delay setting to continously update the tooltip text but it seems much cleaner to just do this right before the tooltip gets displayed.

We don't have an event for that yet but I can add it to the TODO list for you.

How about this though... since you are using the command pattern, what if we make BarCommand.ToolTipText virtual. Would that accomplish what you need? I believe it is only called before the tooltip is displayed.

Yes I think that would work better for folks who subclass BarCommand.
