I'm trying to implement a custom tooltip for a tree, where

inherits from TreeItemRenderer and intercept the createTooltip
event from there, but my custom renderer doesn't seem to receive
any of the tooltip manager events, even though the parent
TreeItemRenderer implements IToolTipManagerClient (from
