In Pega 7 and above - Is there a OOTB feature to show a help icon for selective fields on a UI form?

Pega 7 thru 7.3 has very good improvements to the UI components, but not this. I'm wondering how folks are implementing this requriement in Pega 7 layouts. Would like to hear from you guys.

Requirement: Display a "?" icon for selective fields (beside the field's label, if possible) in a UI form. Display rich help text on hover of the help icon.

Note - we can simply configure a hover action on a field and display smartInfo. But I need the "?" icon.

Approaches I'm aware of:

  1. Add a cell beside the field and configure Smart Info control on hover of the help icon. But this wouldn't work when using dynamic in-line double/triple layouts.
  2. In lower versions, you can create a control for the label with a help icon and configure smartInfo in that control.
