Tooltip, drag with the component into which it was placed

I have displayed a tooltip on managerContainer panel with the code:

var p:Point = new Point(m.x+managerContainer.x,m.y+managerContainer.y+m.height);
                        p = this.contentToGlobal(p);
                        var s:String =note;
                        var tip:ToolTip = ToolTipManager.createToolTip(s,
                              p.x , p.y
                              
                        ) as ToolTip;

But my panel is a draggable one. Now I want the tooltip to be dragged when the panel is dragged without destroying and creating the tooltip over and over again. How to do that, do you know?

Try this:
var tip:ToolTip;//declare this outside the function to have a global scope of this variable

var p:Point = new Point(m.x+managerContainer.x,m.y+managerContainer.y+m.height);
p = this.contentToGlobal(p);
var s:String =note;
if( tip == null ){
    tip = ToolTipManager.createToolTip(s, p.x , p.y ) as ToolTip;
}
tip.move( p.x, p.y );

Open in new window


//remember to destroy the tooltip on hide.

Tutorial sample here.
