We can set tooltip to the combo box with the help of setToolTip method and for setting tooltip to the view part we have to use view object with this method. Below is the representation of how individual item tool tip look like.

In order to do we have to use the following method

combo_box.setItemData(index, tool_tip_text, QtCore.Qt.ToolTipRole)

Here index is the index of the item
tool_tip_text is the string which show as tool tip

Below is the implementation




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
import sys
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
  
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a combo box object
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
  
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 150, 30)
  
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Sayian", "Super Sayian", "Super Sayian 2", "Super Sayian B"]
  
        # adding list of items to combo box
        self.combo_box.addItems(geek_list)
  
        # setting tool tip to each item
        self.combo_box.setItemData(0, "This is a tooltip for item[0]", QtCore.Qt.ToolTipRole)
        self.combo_box.setItemData(1, "This is a tooltip for item[1]", QtCore.Qt.ToolTipRole)
        self.combo_box.setItemData(2, "This is a tooltip for item[2]", QtCore.Qt.ToolTipRole)
        self.combo_box.setItemData(3, "This is a tooltip for item[3]", QtCore.Qt.ToolTipRole)
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
window.show()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
