ToolTips in Leopard - Second Posting

  • ToolTips that work in Tiger don't work in Leopard.

    A simple custom containment view that has custom subviews - each with controls that have ToolTips via bindings.  The subviews are instantiated and added as subviews programmatically - the view resizes to accommodate them.  ToolTips for controls in the subviews are shown correctly in Tiger, not shown or incorrectly located in Leopard.  The subviews display and operate properly, work correctly in the responder chain, nextKeyView loop, etc.  Cursor tracking is correct (some of the controls are text fields).  Just ToolTips are SNAFU.

    Is there something I need to do to "update" tracking for tooltips after adding a subview?  Is this a bug in Leopard?  Is there a known work-around?  Help!

    John, I would suggest logging this as a bug. If you have a test case
    (or a small test app) that reproduces it, please attach that to the bug.

    Also, based on your posting, I'm not sure exactly what the problem is.
    You mention that tool tips aren't working on Leopard but did work on
    Tiger. Can you be more specific? Things that are useful to know in
    problems like this:

    * What/when/where you saw tooltips on Tiger and when you aren't seeing
    them on Leopard (ie: you move your mouse to a specific view, or a
    specific location in a view).
    * If you are linking against the 10.5 framework SDK or not.
    * How you are doing your tooltips (ie: only through bindings? are they
    being dynamically updated?)
