[archive] Tool Tips

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 19 July 2005]

Hello,
Is there a way to program ToolTips in Acucobol; where you hold the mouse arrow over a control and a more detailed explanation of the control's function is displayed?

Thanks

RE: [archive] Tool Tips

The title of a push button becomes a tool tip. If you use a push button and place a bitmap on the push button, the bitmap image may not indicate what the button does, but the tiltle property of the push button will provide the tool tip so that when you mouse ove the bitmapped button the text of title shows in the tool tip.

RE: [archive] Tool Tips

An old thread, but I'd like to join in on this.
It would be very useful to have the possibility to get a tooltip on every control available.

One example: I have a grid containing various elements. If I place the mouse over one of the fields I'd like to present an accumulated sum of this code (for instance). I would do this in the event-procedure, when I capture the event for displaying a tooltip, I would generate the tooltip based on my own rules and then present it for the user.

Tools tips for controls other than the push button are being considered for future development (enhancements )
