Tool tip to Export Table programmatically

Description

There are solutions in the R and Python client using synTableQuery and syn.tableQuery to get the same metadata that Export Table provides. Surfacing this information is desired for Provenance and reproducibility - the ability for researchers to document their work as they complete analyses. With a UI click, there is a disconnect whereas with the query, someone can reproduce the analysis.

We surface queries in command line so we should be able to leverage the same mechanism to achieve this.

I’m not quite following here. Are you asking for a Tooltip in the Web Client when someone goes to “Export Table” - to provide a Programmatic Option for that?

I should have passed this on to you some time ago, does it make sense to consider this request in the contest of the download design work you’re doing?

This definitely seems like it would fit in well. I will add it, thanks!
