On my machine with access 2003, controltip takes about 5 seconds to display, which is annoying.
So, I am looking for a simple way to speed things up. A tools option (or even a registry hack) changing the 5 second delay to a 1 second delay would be great.
But, since I don't know how to do this, the attached code using the mousemove event is the best I can come up with.
There are several problems
#1, Every form needs its own control named "myToolTip"
#2, I would like to code the mousemove events to be =tooltipper() instead of =tooltipper("form","controlname").
I tried saying =tooltipper(Me), but that does not work.
#3, The tooltipper subroutine runs about 500 times a second for as long as the mouse is in the control
