ToolTip only shows once


R

Rainer Queck

Hi NG,

working on a project in VS2005 I started to add ToolTips.
My problem now is, that each ToolTip only shows once.
mouving the mouse over a button shows its tooltip, moving to the next button
show the coresponding tooltib.
If I now move back to the first button the tooltip does not popup again.

Is there "some setting" responsible for that? What must I do, that the
tooltip is shown every time the mouse moves over the control?

Thanks for help
Regards
Rainer

Hi Rainer,

Based on my understanding, you use a ToolTip component on a form. When you
move the pointer over a Button, the tooltip window pops up. Moving the
pointer to the next Button, the tooltip window pops up showing the
corresponding tooltip text. However, when you move back to the first
button, the tooltip window doesn't pop up again. If I'm off base, please
feel free to let me know.

I performed a test based on your description, but didn't reproduce the
problem on my side.

I create a WinForms application and add two Buttons named button1 and
button2 and a ToolTip named toolTip1 on the form. Set the button1's ToolTip
on the toolTip1 to 'button1' and set that of the button2 to 'button2' in
the Properties window.

Run the application. When I point the mouse over the button1, a tooltip
window pops up showing 'button1'. I move the mouse to the button2 and a
tooltip window pops up showing 'button2'. Then I move back to the button1
and a tooltip window still pops up showing 'button1'.

Is there any difference between your application and mine?


Sincerely,
Linda Liu

Hello Linda,

thanks for your efforts.
I went back to this issue in my project, and I don't know why, but now I do
get the tooltips.
All I currently can say, that it "was" as described.
I will keep a eye on this and if I manage to get a reproducable case, I will
let you know.

Other Question:
Did you get the chanc to download (see link in the other thread) an observe
the "Formdesigner looses controls" issue?
This IS reproducable (at least on my machine).

Regards
Rainer Queck

Hi Rainer,

Thank you for your prompt response.

No problem. Whenever you reproduce the problem about ToolTip, please let me
know.

As for your another post titled 'Form desinger looses controls', I have
downloaded the sample project and did reproduce the problem on my side. I
have replied to that post and you may see my rely there.

Sincerely,
