Open Source – Balloon Tip Class


The BalloonTip Class was created to provide balloon tip popups. It is based very loosely on the BalloonTip component example provided with WinDev, however it has been stripped down to only the parts needed to display a Balloon tip for a control.

Displaying a balloon tip is a simple call to one method. There are only three parameters, the name of the control to “point to”, the header text, and the message test. It really is as simple as that. There is a property that controls how long the tip is displayed.

Enough of a sales job. I hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions, suggestions, complaints (well not complaints) then please use the comments below so we can all benefit from each others additions. This article will be updated with each new release of the class.
