  • That is normal behavior. You can create dynamic tooltips using ActivateCell and changing the tooltiptext in afterrowcolchange. For a sample check:

    There is a great class on Russian website I tried to adapt a while back. It worked great in my tests, I did translate most of the stuff into English. I don't know, however, if I still have a copy of this class somewhere - will have to search quite hard.

    The relevant UT discussion is this
