Summary: Tooltips don't work inside of TitlepanesTooltip: doesn't work inside of Titlepane

Ah right, it's because the Tooltip._setConnectIdAttr() code executes before the TitlePane.containerNode has been inserted into the DOM, andsoit can't find the <img> node via dojo.byId("tooltip_trigger").

The right thing to do is to defer the tooltip's connect code until the Tooltip.startup() call, but that might break existing apps which aren't calling Tooltip.startup(). Could run the code twice although that's ineffecient.

As a workaround you can call this after requiring Tooltip:

dojo.connect(dijit.Tooltip.prototype, "startup", function(){
	this.set("connectId", this.get("connectId"));

Hmm, I just realized the problem is more severe in that tooltips don't create correctly when attached to a drop down menu from a DropDownButton, since they look for the attach node at a time when it's not attached to <body>.

So I changed my mind and will do this for 1.7.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

(In [25500]) Fix bug in code from #9568, dealing with connecting to nodes that don't exist until the Tooltip.startup() call. This allows tooltip creation on Menus or in TitlePanes. Fixes #12665, refs #9568 !strict
