Supported in Grid?



For command buttons, this property is supported only when Representation is set to Uniface.

Command Button

If the Tool Tip Text property is specified, it takes precedence over Tool Tip.

If the Auto Label property is True, and there is an associated label, no tool tip is displayed, even if Tool Tip is True.


The tool tip text is defined as a text message with the same name as the glyph. This message can be up to 1024 characters in length. If no message exists, the polygon's tag title is used by default.
