Dynamic Tooltip Example

3 posts in this topic

I borrowed some code from the 'GUICtrlCreatePic Example' in the help file to illustrate a problem I am having using the Tooltip function.

When the following script is running, the arrow keys will move Merlin around the screen.

I want the tooltip to show his coordinates for a second and then disappear.

This tooltip example fails to disappear.

I am hoping this is a logic problem on my part, but I don't see how.

Thanks for any suggestions.

You need to tell the tooltip exactly when to disappear with the

ToolTip("") command

hmm, maybe AdlibEnable?

Manadar,

I could have sworn I tried that earlier! :D

Thank you for making me try it again.

It worked this time. :D
