Grid - Tooltip for Header


In Vaadin 7 we used
as a workaround to display a tooltip for every header cell of a grid.

It seems this does not work anymore in Vaadin 8. Is there an official way or a new workaround to set tooltips in grids in Vaadin?


There was a bug in populating the content of the default grid header row, where the user value was overridden. There’s a fix for it in Vaadin 8.1.0.rc2. See
