Greyed out menu items should have a tool tip explaining *why* they're greyed out
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-234
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-234
             Project: Directory Studio
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: studio-ldapbrowser
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
         Environment: OSX 10.4
            Reporter: Alan Batie


All GUIs should have a tool tip explaining why something is greyed out and what needs to be
done to make it active (and it needs to be *useful* information, not just "it doesn't apply"
or "you're not allowed to do that now" --- it's obvious the *application* thinks that because
it's greyed out).  In this case, I did a search against our ldap server, found an attribute
that needed removing and did so.  Then I did another search.  This time the font changed to
italic, and when I go to delete an attribute, Delete is greyed out.  There is no clue anywhere
as to what's going on.  I searched in help for the ldap browser, and found very little.
