Syntax[edit]

DEF BUTTONHELPDISPLAY ( bntID )

Revised[edit]

May, 2003 (Release 8)

Description[edit]

In non Carbon applications, help balloons are used to display the help message associated with a given button. Unlike Help tags in Carbon, Help balloons related to FutureBASIC buttons will not show up magically on screen. Your application must determine when the Help balloon must be displayed. You will generally intercept a _cursOver event in you dialog handler to retrieve the btnID over which the mouse pointer is located. Help balloons must be enabled at the system level in order to see effectively the Help balloons on screen.

This command is ignored in Carbon applications.

You must include "Subs Help tags.Incl" in your project to make this command available to your program.
