how to show description on column header(name) tooltip

I would like to use a field value as a tooltip when hovering over a column in a table.  For example, I have a Title field and a Description field (which can be quite large).  I would like to drag the tiitle to the table to show the column name and on tooltip I would like to show the description.  Is this possible?


Like I have 10 columns, on mouse hover of each column it should show it's description.

Re: how to show description on column header(name) tooltip

@v-pussah - I am not aware of a way to do that. I thought that maybe there is a work-a-found for this that involved layering a transparent visual on top of the column headers but can't remember exactly.
