I have a form that uses pages. On the Committee page I have several command buttons each with ControlTip Text defined. None of the command buttons except for the second icon (two squares with a '+') use the On Mouse Move event. When I open the form and hover the mouse over the second icon the ControlTip does not show -- even after over 20 seconds of hovering. Screenshot below. (The screen capture does not show that the mouse pointer is actually a hand on my screen because I inserted a space character for the Hyperlink Address. But this is irrelevant.)
Yet if I hover the mouse over another icon the controltip shows, and when I come back to the second icon the controltip becomes almost immediately visible:
The code in the event handler selectively displays a message in the status bar:
Private Sub imgAdvCommiteeCopy_MouseMove(button As Integer, Shift As Integer, x As Single, y As Single)
' Reports on the number of records in the clipboard when the student IDs match.
' The mouse pointer turns to a hand because the space has been entered in the control's Hyperlink
Dim nRecords As Integer
On Error GoTo ErrHandler
nRecords = DCount("*", "tblTmpClipboardCommittee", "[STUDENT_ID]='" & Me.STUDENT_ID & "'")
If (nRecords <> 0) Then
StatusBar (nRecords & " records in the committee clipboard")
On Error Resume Next
DisplayUnexpectedError Err.Number, Err.Description, Err.Source & ": imgAdvCommiteeCopy_MouseMove"
I am using Office 2013 see the issue under Office 2016 as well.
Does anybody know what is going on? Thanks.
