Vaadin 8 Tooltip in console font and no linebreaks e.g. in Tabsheet.Tab

Version: 8.0.0.beta2

A Tooltip for a tab displayed in a TabSheet does not line-break and is displayed in a console font.
The possibility to provide ContentMode with setDescription is missing (which fixed for other ToolTips in Vaadin 8)

Other affected components (used so far):

  • MenuBar.MenuItem

Sample to reproduce:

final VerticalLayout layout = new VerticalLayout();
layout.addComponent(new Label("Tabsheet Tooltip Linebreak Test with Vaadin Version: " +

    TabSheet sample = new TabSheet();
    sample.setHeight(100.0f, Unit.PERCENTAGE);
    final String toolTipText = "A23456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789";

    String tabToolTipText = "";
    for (int i = 1; i < 8; i++) {
        tabToolTipText = tabToolTipText + " " + toolTipText;
        final VerticalLayout tablayout = new VerticalLayout(new Label(
                "Tooltip Content: " + tabToolTipText, ContentMode.HTML));
        Tab tab = sample.addTab(tablayout, "Tab " + i);

Thank you Henri!

Should issues like these be reported to the forums first so that they can be checked first or is reporting them directly in Github more efficient ? (Currently there are just too many open issues on GitHub to make really sure nothing has been already reported by someone else)

I’d say that if the issue is clearly a bug, there is a straight-forward way to reproduce it and a few quick searches in GitHub issues with relevant keywords don’t give an exact duplicate, it can be reported directly in GitHub.
