I'm putting the finishing touches on a GUIDE (MATLAB) developed GUI. I wanted to add tooltip strings to help the user but I don't want to overwhelm the user. Here are some examples of tootip strings that I have so far:
These are tooltip strings for 4 radio buttons that I have in a radio-group panel.
Apply annotation to highlighted region of the selected electrode pair
Apply annotation to entire data range of selected electrode pair
Apply annotation to entire data-set of selected lead (6 electrode pairs)
Apply annotation to entire data-set for both leads (12 electrode pairs)
This is the tooltip string for a toolbar push button
Press to start annotating. Depending on selected mode, a highlight tool or window will appear
Are these too long or are they an acceptable length? Currently they convey all the information that I need to convey to the user. If these are too long, what could I do to shorten them?
