simple dx tooltips resource for GUI elements:

it reads gui element data ("tooltip-text") on hover, and displays the tooltip. for example:
setElementData(button, "tooltip-text", "Your tooltip text goes here", false)
that's all, tooltip will be displayed on hover.

to change colors you can set (hex color) element data "tooltip-color" for text and "tooltip-background" for background. example:

setElementData(button, "tooltip-text", "Your tooltip text goes here", false)
setElementData(button, "tooltip-color", "#FFFFFF", false)
setElementData(button, "tooltip-background", "#666666", false)

this tooltip will be with white text on dark gray background.

font option requires a font name and size in 1 string, example:
setElementData(button, "tooltip-font", "bankgothic 0.5", false)

also some trick you can use:
if you can set tooltip parameters (without the actual tooltip-text) on some parent gui element - it will affect all the children's tooltips. for example:

setElementData(someWindow, "tooltip-background", "#33AA33", false)
will set green background for all tooltips in someWindow. and of course you can override it by specifying colors for particular tooltip.
