Hi everyone,

I need to create a tooltip module to guide my users in the controls of my window and the controls inside my datawindow(ex. button inside datawindow). Is this possible? I am using PB6.5

Please help


RE: tooltip

u could ideally have a static text with the contents of tooltip and make it invisible..
in the mouseover event of the button u can make the statuc text control visible

mouseover event - u need to create a user defined event of type pdwm_mouseover (something similar to this name)

RE: tooltip

I already did that, what if it is inside a datawindow for example a button, if you use mousemove it will only display the context for the datawindow and not the controls inside it.


RE: tooltip

Thank you mbalent! Though it was written in PB9 i was able to import it into PB6.5, I am now using it in my program.
