As part of the feedback on hrev45330:

f0e995c: Create TimeZoneListView class and move GetToolTipAt into it, fixes #7726 + if (fToolTip != NULL) + fToolTip->ReleaseReference(); + fToolTip = new (std::nothrow) BTextToolTip(toolTip.String()); + if (fToolTip == NULL) + return false;

There is a SetToolTip(const char*) version that could be used instead of doing it the complicated way.

Actually from what I can tell the way this is done is pretty smart, because GetToolTipAt is only called when the mouse is idle. To use the SetToolTip(const char*) version would require constantly setting the tool tip when the mouse is moving, which is much less efficient.

What I decided to do instead is make use of the BTextToolTip's SetText method to just update the text of the existing tool tip if it already exists, and creating it otherwise. That doesn't change the above code much, but it saves constantly recreating the tool tip for no reason.

Fixed in hrev45347.

On second thought this code is more or less reproducing what is inside BView's SetToolTip(const char*), so I've ACTUALLY fixed this ticket now in hrev45348.
