Controltip text in continuous form

P: n/a
Rob
THis is probably an easy one. I want to change the tool tip text in a
continuous form for a visible field based on info in a hidden field on
the same record. It is easy to put the change in the current event
and that works great, as long as the user clicks in the desired row
BEFORE he hovers over the field to see the control tip text.

Is there an easy way to set this up so that it works without having to
force the user to click into the row?

Thanks in advance,
Rob

ContinuousFormsCurrentRow.zip is a class that allows you to
programmatically access the contents of a bound control, as the user
moves their Mouse, but the control does not have the focus. For Forms in
Continuous View.
