Is it possible to roll over a shape and have a text box pop up?

RE: pop up text

As far as I know, shapes don't have programmable events. However, you could place a transparent label over top of the shape and then place your pop up code in the MouseMove event.

For example, the following would display a message box whenever the mouse cursor moves over a command button:


Private Sub cmdOK_MouseMove(ByVal Button As Integer, ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single)
    MsgBox "Hello World!"
End Sub
Hopefully that gives you some ideas.

RE: pop up text

Thanks Insider, I will see what that can do for me.
