PowerBuilder ‘Gotcha’ – Tooltips do not display

Posted on Monday, April 1st, 2013 at 5:17 pm in

I was working on setting up datawindow tooltips for a project and ran into an issue where sometimes they would not display for specific columns on the datawindow.

Here is what you have to do:

The tooltip Enabled property must be TRUE.

The tooltip text must not be an empty string or NULL.

The tooltip duration must be greater than zero.


All of these are properties which can be set via expressions and/or modify statements.  Make sure they evaluate correctly as well.
