rich:tooltip on rich:tree ?

Is there a way to display some tooltip into each element of the tree, displaying by exemple the "description" field of each item?

You can add a tooltip to the label of the tree.

If you want a tooltip on the icon you can use javascript (onmouseover, onmouseout) to show and hide a popup box.
<rich:tree style="width:300px" value="#{library.data}" var="item" nodeFace="#{item.type}">
   <rich:treeNode type="artist" iconLeaf="/images/tree/singer.gif" icon="/images/tree/singer.gif">
      <h:outputText value="#{item.name}" title="Tooltip" />
   </rich:treeNode>
   <rich:treeNode type="album" iconLeaf="/images/tree/disc.gif" icon="/images/tree/disc.gif">
      <h:outputText value="#{item.title}" title="Tooltip" />
   </rich:treeNode>
   <rich:treeNode type="song" iconLeaf="/images/tree/song.gif" icon="/images/tree/song.gif">
      <h:outputText value="#{item.title}" title="Tooltip" />
   </rich:treeNode>
</rich:tree>

But the problem is the Tree is dynamic and recursive.

So how can I specify this?

I can put a outputText in the recursive tree adaptor???

<rich:tree id="tree" switchType="ajax" ajaxSubmitSelection="true"  value="#{AddDeal.deal.idRequestedService}">
  <rich:recursiveTreeNodesAdaptor roots="#{AddDeal.rootService}" var="item" nodes="#{item.serviceCollection}" />
</rich:tree>

I never used the recursiveTreeNodeAdaptor, so won't be able to help you. In the documentation, there is no title parameter for this component.

What you can do, write your own implementation on the recursiveTreeNodeAdaptor, and add an extra paramter 'title' to it.
You probably will need to re-write your tag, component and renderer.
