My tooltips all work fine. But if I park the mouse on any of the tooltipped objects, its tooltip will flash or blink, a bit intermittently, but roughly at the rate of about half a second. Any ideas what I've done wrong? Thanks.

Hi Peter,

I have not seen this type of behavior before in DemoShield. Would it be possible for you to post a copy of your zipped .dbd file so that I can research this issue further? If you demo is too large, you can export a few of the scenes where the behavior occurs into a blank demo and post that.

I look forward to your response.

Hi Joanna:

Thanks for getting back. Further investigation revealed that this problem only appeared on slow machines. The test case is an old Dell laptop -- P2/233. We decided that the tooltips weren't crucial to the application, so we just ripped them all out.

But I did go ahead and recompile the app with a sample tooltip -- it's attached to the "Next" button on the first screen of the app, so you can see what I am talking about. A zip of the DBD is attached. Thanks

Onward,

Peter.
