Display variables in a textbox tooltip RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a text box on a form, when I hover over the textbox I want to display a couple of variable values on my form e.g. var1 = 2 and var2 = 6.

    Please can anyone tell me how I can do this in VBA.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You can use the ControlTipText property to specify the text that appears in a ScreenTip when you hold the mouse pointer over a control.

  • Try something like: Me.txtBox1.ControlTipTexts = SomeVariable

    You may want to use VBA to set this variable on different events, like the CurrentEvent, LoadEvent, or after user had done something on the form.
