Sense extension properties description

Is it possible to have a text description for items within a section of the properties panel in a Qlik Sense visualization extension?

I have not come across anything like this in the Qlik Sense Developers Help, which states that custom properties may be of the following types:

  • String
  • Integer
  • Number
  • Check box
  • Drop down
  • Radio button
  • Switch
  • Slider
  • Range-slider

Considering the absence of tooltips for individual items in the properties panel, I think it would be great to be able to provide a brief description of properties within a section:

Is there a way to accomplish anything like this?

Thanks for replying, Stefan.  Your tutorial is a really great reference! 

However, l still cannot find anything that describes how to achieve what I am thinking.  I would like to have some text under a section header that describes the properties within the section – like a label that is not attached to any properties.  Here is a mockup of the idea:

I think it would be useful to have a "description" property for a section header in addition to the "label" property.

Thanks, Stefan.  I think it could provide extension users with a quick reference that could save the effort of having to refer to documentation all of the time.

Hi Stefan,

Sorry for the confusion.  I just meant that having a brief description for an extension's properties under a section heading might improve the user experience.  It would be easier for a new user to learn how to use an extension quickly if a few hints were provided in the accordion menu.
