Default How to add tool tips to button control

I thought this was a property of any button control but I can't seem to find it in the button properties. Does anyone know how to add a tool tip to a button control.

Thanks in advance
Kevin

Hi,

Have you added the tooltip object to your project from the toolbox?. Once you have done this, then you will get a tooltip option appear in the properties of the form controls (eg text box, button etc.)

Cheers

Byron

Thanks, I didn't realize the tooltip object enabled a tooltip in the properties of other buttons. I've got it working now.
