Helptag lead-in time; tooltip box size

  1. Is there a way to make a helptag appear more quickly? Like immediately?

  2. I know that I could solve (1) above by using a tooltip, but why is the tooltip box in which the text appears so tall? Any way to control that?

Yes, look up the docs for tooltip, it’s something like Show or Display that causes it to show immediately.

Because instead of actually fixing tooltips for 64 bit, Xojo created yet another fake control.

That’s for tooltip. Helptag has no show/hide methods. I think the helptag looks much better and personally am happy with the delay and the way it fades out. But there are those who want the tag/tip to appear and vanish immediately, so I’m looking at tooltip for them, just that the tall box a tooltip appears in looks soppy.
