Copy tooltip content?

    Question

  • Hi,

    From time to time, one of the tooltips will appear and present a long string of information that is designed to assist me. The problem is that due to the length of the tooltip text, I am sometimes unable to see the full string that is presented in the tooltip.

    Is there some way I can copy or otherwise capture these long tooltips so I can make full use of them?

    If I overlooked this capability in the documentation, please let me know...

    Thanks,

    Bill

  • In general, no. Tooltips are not copyable. An exception is for "datatips" which appear when you hover the mouse over one of your variables in source code while stopped in the debugger. When the datatip appears, you can right-click and select "Copy Value".

  • Hi Paul,

    Thank you for your reply; it was helpful.

    Now, if I can just convince Microsoft to allow this copy behavior in the next version....!

    Thanks, Paul,
