LC 9.0 Windows - tooltip broken for new datagrid?

2018-10-16 Thread Bernard Devlin via use-livecode
Am I right that this is broken? A new stack with a single button will show the button's tooltip when the pointer hovers over it. Add a datagrid, and set the tooltip for the datagrid through the inspector. The tooltip does not display no matter where the pointer is in the datagrid. Regards

I don't know of a way to intercept them, and I did look, because I have/had exactly the same problem. I wrote a script (ExplicitProperties) which does a decent, but imperfect, attempt to find places you have referenced a customprop, and checks whether it is a "known" one. That was back in

Library to Cancel PendingMessages

We anticipate using more and more animation in our app. It is like Levure in the sense that it is has a lot of "view" module/stacks. For now I just need to cancel one or two. Which we can very easily do "locally" -- store the result and cancel on close card. But I wonder about a global library.

Actually, everything in a datagrid is an object of some sort with it's own tooltip (empty by default). There would have to be special code to display the tooltip for a datagrid instead of the tooltip for the object you are pointing at. I tested in a new stack and the tooltip for a datagrid
