How to use and set ToolTip for Swing components in Java ?.

Program to demonstrate how to use and set ToolTip for Swing components in Java

package com.hubberspot.example;

import java.awt.Container;
import java.awt.FlowLayout;
import javax.swing.JButton;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JLabel;

public class ToolTipDemo {

 public static void main(String[] args) {

  // 1. Create a simple frame by creating an object 
  // of JFrame. 
  JFrame frame = new JFrame();

  // 2. Give the frame a title "Tool Tip Frame" by calling 
  // setTitle method on frame object
  frame.setTitle("Tool Tip Frame");

  // 3. Give frame a size in pixels as say 300,300 
  frame.setSize(300, 300);

  // 4. set a operation when a user close the frame, here it 
  // closes the frame and exits the application

  // 5. Create a button by creating an Object of class 
  // JButton. 
  JButton button = new JButton();

  // 6. set the text of button as "Button"

  // 7. Create a label by creating an Object of class 
  // JLabel
  JLabel label = new JLabel();

  // 8. set the text of label as "Label"

  // 9. In order to create a tool tip for label, 
  // button or any swing components, we call setToolTipText
  // method and passing it the information we want to display 
  // when user hovers over the swing components
  button.setToolTipText("Tool Tip for Button");
  label.setToolTipText("Tool Tip for Label");

  // 10. for adding all these swing components to frame
  // we first get the content pane which returns a 
  // Container
  Container container = frame.getContentPane();

  // 11. We create a Layout for Swing Components
  // here we are using FlowLayout with value as "center'
  // it will make the swing components float to center
  FlowLayout layout = new FlowLayout(FlowLayout.CENTER);

  // 12. We set the layout for container

  // 13. We add the button and label to it

  // 14. after adding button and label, we make it 
  // visible on the frame by calling the method as 
  // setVisible and passing value as true.
