MouseMove Event

We have a survey form with option buttons to Excellent, Good, Bad Not Acceptable. We need to criteria behind each of these option to ensure that the correct selection is made. For example "Excellent" might be based on "The equipment is clear of defects, is clean and does as required"

This criteria is based in the same table as the question, with a field for each of the Reponses.

Currently we have 4 text (memo) controls on the form, with the criteria  for each selection. My problem is that this criteria is dominating the form, as sometimes it can be paragraphs long.

Is it possible to have a single, unbound control, that displays the relevant criteria when hovering over each of the selectons? Acting very much as a ControlTip Text would.

Yes, but to do so, you must use the MouseMove event of each of those radio buttons, and then to make sure that the text disappears when you are not over one of those buttons, you must use the mousemove event of the frame they are in (if they are in a frame) or of the detail section to reset the text in that control.
