How do you set the tooltip for a text field? There doesn't seem to be a TooltipText property for a TextField, but ToolTip is listed as a property for the Text Field in the Designer.

I've searched "tooltip textfield" and found no answer.

There is a TooltipText property for the TextField Object.

Unless you have assigned it to a B4xView object In which case you can cast it to a Textfield object to change or add the tooltip.

B4X:
Dim ETView As TextField = B4xTF '(a b4xview)
ETView.TooltipText = "TooltipText"

Oh, dang it! I got caught by the B4XView thing again! I DIMmed the TextField as B4XView. I changed it to TextView, and of course it works.

OK, so... now that I've been hit twice with this, I will know in the future. Cross your fingers! :D
