I was trying to get a rudimentary tree widget up quickly by using an XML derived from a HHTP service as the data provider. Then I pointed the labelField attribute of the mx:tree to an xml element attribute using XPath (say, @name). This worked well as it alid out the XML tree as a Flex tree with the label of each node being the "name" attribute of the different XML elements. Each xml element which has a "name" attribute also has a corresponding "description" attribute. What I wanted to do was to make this "description" attribute appear as the tooltip for each node in mx:tree. But I could not find any property in mx:tree which would allow this.
Is this possible at all? Any help is greatly appreaciated.
