    Tool tips are a great new feature for FileMaker Pro 8. This feature eliminates the need for a plugin or individual scripts for each object. For example, in FileMaker Pro 7 and earlier the first part of a script was used to detect if the user is holding down the shift or shift+caps lock keys. It then showed the user a custom message. This demo is filled with tool tips for you to investigate. Just scroll the pointer over any object to see what appears.
