Description


The tooltip property is defined on each field and if the tooltip is defined, when the cursor is on the field, the tooltip is displayed in the little yellow frame. I would like different mode on the selection of the tooltip to known if the tooltip is displayed or not. Also, I want to select the language of the tooltip. It can be different with the current language. Also, I can set the duration time of the display of the tooltip and can select do not display the tooltip dynamically.

Use Case


A field FIELD1 containt the tooltip LEVEL1=$text(AAAA) LEVEL2=$text(BBB) LEVEL3=$text(CCC) I\'m a beginner on the application, my level is 1. The tooltip in this case is $text(CCC) Another user with a LEVEL1, in thi case, the tooltip is $text(AAAA) Also, I can change dynamically the language of the tooltip. set $tooltiplanguage=USA I saw a screen in China, and tooltip is in English. Now I\'m an expert on the application, and I don\'t wants to see tooltip. By proc code: set $tooltip=False Duration : set $tooltipduration=30 , ms Level set $tooltiplevel=3

Importance


When you have an application in a multi language, for the maintenance, if all labels are displayed in chinese and you wants to make some adjustement with the user, I wants to see tooltip on each field, know the name of the current form but not in chinese, in english or anything else.

  1. In Uniface 9 there is a new property for $properties and $fieldproperties named : tooltiptext. You can set the tooltiptext dynamically using this property e.g. $fieldproperties (fieldname) = “tooltiptext = My tool tip text , or use $text(message)”. Workaround: Use the help triggers to get information to the end users.
