In this article we will see how we can set the tool tip to the drop down part of the combo box. When we set tool tip to the combo box it only shows for the line edit part, tool tip is not visible for the drop down part i.e its view part.
In order set tool tip to the view part we have to do the following – 1. Create Combo box 2. Add items to the combo box 3. Get the view object of the combo box 4. Add tool tip to the view object
Syntax :
# getting view part of combo box
view = self.combo_box.view()

# setting tool tip to view object of the combo box
view.setToolTip(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 widget
        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"]
  
        # making it editable
        self.combo_box.setEditable(True)
  
        # adding list of items to combo box
        self.combo_box.addItems(geek_list)
  
        # tool tip
        tip = "Drop down tool tip"
  
        # getting view part of combo box
        view = self.combo_box.view()
  
        # setting tool tip to view object of the combo box
        view.setToolTip(tip)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
