update toolTip programmatically


Not applicable
I have a problem setting the toolTip programmatically. Does anybody know why the following line would not update the toolTip? Is there a configuration step needed to allow this at runtime?

var f = pObj.somExpression.substring(15) );

f.userName = "My custom tooltip";

f is a valid object, i can set any other property, as visibility, read-only, etc..., but not the tooltip. Any help greatly appreciated.

Thank you,


P.S. I tried a dummy sample with a test form containing only a text field in it, but the custom tooltip does not show, only the one set at design time. I am using Designer ES 8.1.2121...

Hello Julian,

In your dummy sample, did you try something like:

TextField1.assist.toolTip.value = "My custom tooltip";
