I need advice on some Stephen Lebans' code

P: n/a
Hi,

I have an application where I need to show detailed information
about items in a dropped-down combobox.

I have been studying Mr Lebans' examples called Tooltip.mdb and
ComboCurrentRow.mdb, but I can't seem to be able to combine the two
to get a Tooltip to show data from (a hidden column in) the current
row of the combobox.

I can see the info I want in a textbox on the form that contains my
combo-boxes, and if I quickly move from the row to the textbox
portion of the combo, I can see the data in the tooltip, but I'd
really like to present my users with a tooltip while they are over
the row.

Has anybody successfully done this?
How???

Bob I have helped a couple of people over the last year in the NG's with
this issue. They all said they were able to produce a working solution. A
GoogleGroups search should yield the relevant threads. I think maybe even
oen or two sent me their working MDB's but no luck in a quick search here.

Let me know.
