Example or code for tooltip per cell on Beta 2?

Anyone have an Example or code for tooltip per cell on Beta 2.0?

In the old version I just did this......
/*************Add ToolTip*********/
var myColsTips = new Array();
for (var col=0; col < (myColumns.length); col++) {
    obj.getTemplate("column",col).setAttribute("title", function(){return this.getProperty("column/text") + ": \'" + this.getProperty("item/tooltip") + "\'"});
    obj.defineProperty("data/tooltip", function(i, col){return myData[i][col];});

obj.setProperty("column/tooltip", function(i){return myColsTips[i]});

You can do similar thing with AW 2.0. However I just found what looks like a more clever way - adding tooltips dynamicaly on mouseover event. I think this approach is better because it does not affect initial rendering performance (each data request from the cell template is expensive).

obj.setCellTooltip(function(i, j){return j + "." + i});

    obj.onCellMouseOver = function(event, col, row){
        var e = this.getCellTemplate(col, row).element();
        var s = this.getCellTooltip(col, row);
        if (e) {
            e.setAttribute("title", s);
        e = null;

I am going to add this code in the beta2 so you will not need an event handler in the future, just set your tooltip text.
