Dear all,

How can we display a message when the mouse points (hovers) on a button object.

Please advise.

Thanks

Hi,

Go to the Object Properties -- Caption tab and add your text in the Help Text field. (see image for reference)

Thanks Syed Khaled Shahbaaz

This helps to some extent.  Do you have any idea if we can make any formatting to the tect background and text being displayed on hover?

Hi.

Syed is right. Try the way he is said I think you will reach your goal.

Sankeerth,

You may use transparent text objects with description for mouse-over text in the Help Text area. Overlaying these objects on any other object would simulate the effect of mouse-over text. As far as I know, directly achieving mouse over is not possible (Macros excluded).

Hope that helps.

Regards,

-Khaled
