Hello, in .py side need to put field attribut "help" and your description. For Example

  • 'field_name': fields.char('Field Name', help="here is your tooltip message")

Hope this will help you.

This help message will appear on the label 'Field Name', but I want the message appearing on the textfield itself

Then use placeholder="your message" in xml. It will display message in textfield and when you click on that field it will disapper if you write something and vice-versa.

thank you for this proposition but, what I really want is to have the help message appearing on the field rather than on the label when the user simply move the cursor on the field.
