Tool Tips

Namespace: SoftwareEng

The little messages that appear when you pause over a toolbar button.
The Form.ShowTips property must be set to .T. (it is .F. in the form baseclass) for the tooltip of the objects to display. This also make it easier to turn the tooltips on and off based on a user preference.
In Web-based applications, you can use the TITLE property of many HTML elements to achieve a tool tip that at least works for MSIE browsers. Example (hold your mouse over the objects):
