There is no need to be an option - as in, there would be no single reason to disable this. However, many of the tooltips are not generated programmatically so it's currently simply not possible to add the shortcuts to those tooltips.
I would vote for that feature also. It will be very nice and useful for beginners to see shortcut and be able to see "Play Pattern (F7)" in a tooltip. Otherwise one may stuck with continously clicking Setup icon to review those shortcuts.
If tooltips are not generated programmatically, maybe there is a possibility to update them on shortcut definition change?
This is exactly what implies generating them programmatically.
Thank you for answering, specially because this issue is rather old.
I am a programmer and wish to help but I am not specialized in C++ although I have some knowledge about it and WinAPI. It seems to be good idea to generate hints / tooltips programmatically.
The code you referred to is already being used (in some way or another), the reason there are no tips for toolbar buttons at the moment is that it didn't quite work the last time I tried and I didn't really have any motivation to pursue this issue any further.
Speaking of which, I just looked at the code and figured out why it was misbehaving. I'll start by updating the tooltips in the pattern editor.
I have now implemented tooltips for the icons in the pattern, sample and instrument editor.
As of r11583, tooltips are also shown for the main toolbar.
OpenMPT 1.28.05.00 contains all the changes. There are only a few icons left in the lower part of the sample and instrument editor, but those are not trivial to implement (they are not regular controls).
As of 12023, the remaning buttons in the sample and instrument editor are also equipped with tooltips.
