Tooltip Help Screen (Magic xpa 3.x)

Tooltips provide information about buttons on the toolbar. Tooltips display in a rectangle when the end user places the cursor over a button.

To create a Tooltip Help, zoom from the Name setting of a Tooltip Help entry in the Help Screen repository to the appropriate Help Properties sheet.

The contents of the Tooltip Text field will be displayed when the end user places the cursor on a control that the tooltip is attached to.

To attach a tooltip to a control, use the Tooltip setting in the Input tab of the GUI Control Properties sheet. The display will remain on the user’s screen for the period of time defined in the Tooltip Timeout environment setting or until the cursor is moved.

The font used will be the Tooltip Font as defined in the Font repository. No choice of color is provided. The maximum length of a tooltip is 500 characters.
