Re: ControlTip does not show

    I've entered text in the "ControlTip text" property of a splash screen form
    label. It doesn't appear, despite my selecting the control and choosing Bring
    to Front as suggested in your message.

    I had also set Mouse Down and Mouse Up event procedures to make the label
    appear more like a button (specialEffect = 2, specialEffect = 1). I
    commented that code out, thinking there might be some interference somewhere,
    but the ControlTip text still declines to appear.

    I also have an OnClick event that opens another form. Could that be a factor?

    Any other things I might try?

    TIA

    I found that I had a value in the timer interval property. Clearing that
    solved the problem

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
