ToolTips

I've noticed that the tooltips (drop-down text information that is shown when you hold the mouse over a button or control) aren't always being shown in the new versions of MP3-Boss.

1) Are you seeing this problem?
2) Are tooltips useful? (I think they are...especially for new customers & for infrequently used functions)
3) Should I translate tooltips into other languages (can anyone help?)

Thanks for your help!

Re: ToolTips

my tool tips are getting in the way. They are ok if you have never used the program before, but for someone that knows the software it is not useful.

>my question, how do you turn them off?

I have set the delay to a high number, but it only work after you first open MP3boss, once the delay is over, the tool tips are popping up instantly with a mouse over.

thanks.

Re: ToolTips

Does this happen on all pages, or just in List View?

I'll see what's wrong...but maybe I'll need to add a "turn-off tooltips" checkbox in the configuration (delay-times & such are simply parameters that I send to Windows -- so I don't have a lot of control on what Windows actually does!.

Re: ToolTips

in list view, when I want to add filters, as soon as the mouse goes over filter box the tool tips pop up, and sometimes I have to move the mouse again to get them out of the way ...lol

oh, and thanks for this great software. I really do like it very much, and use it almost every day.

Re: ToolTips

This will be fixed in the next release.

Turns out that I was mixing Integers & Longs when setting the delaytime...and so it often wasn't being set correctly.
