Instance Property


Returns text for display as a help tag.


var toolTip: String? { get }

Return Value

A string that contains help tag content, or NULL if there is no text associated with the annotation.


This method is equivalent to sending the message [self contents]. PDF Kit’s annotation subclasses override this behavior as appropriate. For example, a PDFAnnotationLink object displays a URL or page destination for its help tag.
