I want to show Hint text at Text Item in Oracle Forms 6i.
when my cursor Focus goes at that item. I mean when I go with Tab key or Enter button then it show display text.
even though my mouse is not on that item.
please how it would be possible
Please create a display_item(for eg. Disp_Mess) just below the text field (For eg:-MyField) where you want to show hint. And then assighn Hint text to "DISP_MESS" in NEW-FORM-INSTANCE or at Initial value. Then create a PRE-TEXT-ITEM and POST-TEXT-ITEM trigger for MyField.
-- PRE-TEXT-ITEM trigger write following code.
--POST-TEXT-ITEM write following code.
I want like tooltip showing, but tool tip show when we move our mouse on that item.
Actually I want to do when cursor goes on that item even cursor focus go with Tab key/enter button.
It will be same like tooltip. If you set Bevel property of DISP_MESS (that I used in earlier post) to None. If you want to background color same as tooltip you can set background color for that item.
