ListBox Text PopUp

Hi All,

My immediate application for this is that I have a List Box that lists country-name abbreviations.  But some end-users are not familiar with all the abbreviations, so it would be helpful for them to be able to hover the mouse over the abbreviation and have the full country name pop-up.

Help me with this any API, Extentions, or any crazy IDEA!

Hi Brijesh,

For me  I think we should spend time to create new extension or other object. Why don't you use a field with Country-name.

Or we can use ListBox expression = [Abbreviations] &'-'&[Country Name] so that user can see both Abbrev and full name

Regards,

Re: ListBox Text PopUp

A good solution is just to use as listbox formula:

=KPI & CHR(10) & [Business Description]

Only the KPI will be visible at first, when mouse-overing the business description will become visible.

Hi

You can achieve this using Bar Chart. It's just a workaround.

See this:

You can also use concatenated Field.

eg. CountryCodeField&' - '&chr(32)&chr(32)&CountryNameField AS Newfield

Also, see the Attachment.
