How to customize mouse over tip of Select widget

Hi! Do you have idea about how to change the mouse over tip on the map, for the out-of-box Select widget?


As the attached image shows, when I use point geometry to select features on the map and turn on the "Select" button, I will see "Click to add a point" mouse over tip message. I want to change this message to another, but couldn't find a way to do that.


I am using Web AppBuilder Version 2.17.


I attempted to do it by searching the text "Click to add a point" in all the source code of the Web AppBuilder, including the site that I have created inside, and then changed all the strings that I can find. However, it doesn't work. I also delete the web browser cache, but doesn't help. I attempted to debug into the Select widget, and find that this mouse over tip is toggled on and off by the FeatureSetChooserForMultipleLayers.js module at line 165 (see screenshot). When I clicked the Select button, the jimuUtils.simulateClickEvent function is triggered. If I comment out this function call, the mouse over tip will not work. However, I couldn't go further to dig out how the text is setup, because I encounter the minified code soon after.


Seems I am stuck now. Do you give me some idea how to customize the text of the mouse over tip?


The reason I want to figure this out is because I am using the FeatureSetChooserForMultipleLayer.js to develop a customized widget, such that I need to change the text that comes with it.


Thank you!
