#3876 closed enhancement (patchwelcome)

consider use of dijit tooltips for button title text

Description

Currently the button title text is implemented using the title attribute. The browsers will display a popup containing the title contents when mouseover the element with the title attribute. This, however, is not keyboard accessible. Using a dijit tooltip we could make it keyboard accessible as well.

This is also recommended from IBM Design Leadership recommendations, I guess for consistency in LnF.

The only issue here is if a developer has set their own tooltip - I guess we can check for that before creating the tooltip by default. I think we should only do with with buttons that have showLabel=false.
