Tool Tips?

Postby Livardo » Thu Nov 01, 2007 11:02 am


Is there an easy way to implement Tool Tips with VAST? We have version 7 here.

For example, I have a List Box, and I would like to display a tool tip when the mouse hovers in and goes away when it hovers out.

Any code examples will be specially helpful.

I don't know about Parts, but with WindowBuilder, we use #tipText: all the time. Works like charm.

a bit late, but....nevertheless.

Check the class: AbtCwToolButton included in map: AbtCwControlsRun (speaking for VAST 5.5.2 version)
It has toolTipText attribute and I've been using it in the past.
Unfortunately my current image is somehow corrupted and I can't open parts of this class in the composition editor (as they are implemented in my views).
