yes, setting those in designer should work.
(just to make sure: do you have added a statusbar to your mainwindow?)

What are you setting the status and tool tip for ? the main window, or some widget ?
Both work fine for me.. tested by making a normal QMainWindow from designer and setting status and tool tip for it.

try showing in normally in the .cpp code .. check is it showing perfectly ..
use this
QPoint value2 (x + 70, y );
QString test = "hai hai";
QToolTip::showText(value2, test);
