Subject: Using the Lebans ToolTip Class with Check Boxes and Option Buttons
To answer your question, yes I am using modified code. I wrote a procedure in a standard module that walks through all of the controls on the form, extracts the ControlTipText from each control, sets the ToolTipText in your ToolTip class, and then clears the ControlTipText from the control. I didn't want to have to write code for every form in my application. I also added a property to the ToolTip class that allows me to override your ListBox behaviour with a ControlTip string.
To make sure that the problem wasn't in my code, I retrieved your original Zip file from your website, created a new form, dropped various controls on it, and coded it in the manner you use in your Customers form. The problem persisted; every control type on the form worked EXCEPT Option Buttons and Check Boxes. So I dropped an Option Button and a Check Box onto your Customers form and, sure enough, they work.
So I began comparing your form with mine, and finally figured out that if I turned off Record Selectors in my form, the problem goes away! I can also reproduce the problem in your Customers form by turning Record Selectors on.
I hope you find this useful.
