ComboBox List ToolTip

ComboBox is a very common component used in many projects, what if we can extend its features?
The following example creates a custom tooltip for each item in the DropDown List, data provider for these tips can be set in the ComboBox dataProvider as follows:

[Bindable] private var comboProvider:Array = [
    {label:"item 1", data:{tip:"bla bla bla .."}},
    {label:"item 2", data:{tip:"bla bla .."}},
    {label:"item 3", data:{tip:"bla bla bla bla .."}}

Next step is to implement custom controls to make this ToolTip interactive by adding some like “rename” and “delete”
I’ll get back to you soon with another example
