Tool tips not working for all objects in WebDirect

Tool tips not working for all objects in WebDirect


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows, Macintosh

Description of the issue

This web  page of documentation
states the following about tool tips ...


Tooltips display in FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Pro Advanced, FileMaker WebDirect, and runtime database solutions."

However, in WebDirect, not all objects will display the tool tips that are available in FMP and FMPA.  For example, a rectangle in WebDirect will not display a tool tip.  A graphic object will not display a tool tip.  These will display tool tips in FMP and FMPA.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Draw a rectangle and add a tool tip.  It displays in FMP and FMPA but does not display in WebDirect.  If this behavior is intended, then the documentation should state for which objects tool tips display in WebDirect.  Please check all objects as I have only mentioned 2 as an example to inspire your investigation.


Expected result

Tool tips should display as in FMP and FMPA

Actual result

tool tips do not always display as expected


none -
