Control Tip Text

Control Tip Text and Status Bar Text Properties
In this video I will show you how to use Control Tip Text in your Microsoft Access forms to show the user more information about a control (such as a button) as they hover over it. We'll also see how to use the Status Bar Text for controls like text boxes.
Morgan from Dover, New Hampshire (a Platinum Member) asks: Is there any way that I can give my users a little more information about what certain buttons do before they click on them? I have a lot of buttons on one of my forms, so I have to make them small. The boss likes icons, not captions. Most of them are self-explanatory like "save" and "print" but the button to mark an order a shipped doesn't really lend itself well to an icon. What do you recommend?
Members will learn how to use a different technique involving the OnMouseMove event to display a larger help label on a form with full rich text, colors, etc. We'll also see how to use this to change the screen pointer type.
