I tried out a 2.2.0-M1 tooltip in an enabled & disabled Uif-InputField with this statement:

<property name="toolTip">
<bean parent="Uif-Tooltip" p:tooltipContent="It's Tool Time!"/> </property>

and sometimes the tooltip appears on mouse hover, and sometimes it doesn't. And sometimes it stays there even after the mouse has left the field. At one point I had both fields displaying the tooltip even tho the mouse was nowhere near either field. On Win7 I tried IE8 and the latest Safari & Firefox and got mixed results, but none of them worked as desired.

Can replicate behaviour when adding tooltip directly on fields. Would recommend not to add tooltips on the whole field but rather on the control or label - this seems to resolve any inconsistent behaviour. When added on the field the tooltip will get triggered on empty spans. Will investigate how to avoid this issue.

A plugin that we might want to look at to replace current tooltip : http://calebjacob.com/tooltipster/. The unminified source is available and looks like all the options we need is included.
