hover over link label, give description

Hi, I'd like to give a detailed description of the link label when the user hovers over it, just like the web environment. How is this done, please? Tks!

Helen,
just use the ToolTip component. I've never tried it with LinkLabel, but I
believe it will work :-)

AFAIS that's not supported by the LinkLabel control.

Yes, you can use the ToolTip with a link label.

I thought of a link-sensitive status text... :->.

Thanks, all, it worked. Gr8. Helen


How did you make it link-sensitive if there was more than one link in
the listlabel?

Hi, Herfried

I'm not using a listlabel. I just have linklabels on my main form directing users to other forms where controls and crystal reports are initiated.

The hover over linklabel is cool. Gives a nice clean page and the users can get all the info they need in the tooltips

Hi Helen,

Herfried made a most probably a typo,
How did you make it link-sensitive if there was more than one link in
the listlabel?

Then it is better to add to this message from you.
