    Is there a way to implement a ToolTip for a Pythonscript?

    Something like: help = "The text shown at the bottom of C4D"
    You can do this with Plugins and with Coffee-Scripts. But I have not found out that for Pythonscripts.

    Hello Holger,

    I'm afraid this is not possible with a Python script.
    You could of course create a Python CommandData plugin, but this is probably more work than you will want to spend, only to have a tooltip.

    Hi Andreas. I have found a way to implement Tooltip in Pythonscripts. Thats cool. It should be documented in the SDK.

    If you add this to the script it will have a tooltip:

    """
    Name-US: HB_CoolScript
    Description-US: This is a cool Script
      
    """

    More than documented, it should be part of the standard script template.

    Hi,

    just want to say thanks to Holger for teaching us something new 😊
    Wondering how you did find out?
    Anyway, I need to say sorry, as this would have been my job...
    @Donovan: I forwarded your request to development.

    😂 hehe...well that was luck. I found a Script in my collection and it had a Tooltip. It took me a while that I figured out that the tooltip was coded in the beginning of the Script. I think it was a Script of Bret Bays. So you might ask him where he knows this from 😉
