Prevent Focus on TokenMouseHover Tooltip Text

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 19 years ago by Boyd - Sr. Software Developer, Patterson Consulting, LLC
If you hover over a token in an instance of SyntaxEditor that does not have focus, any resulting tooltip from the TokenMouseHover event will focus that instance of SyntaxEditor. Can this be prevented? I've noticed that Visual Studio 2005 will display tooltips in an unfocused editor without forcing it into focus.

This has been problemmatic for me because I use the 'FocusedToolWindow' property of UIStudio.DockManager to determine which of my editors should have commands executed against it. If the user hovers too long over an unfocused editor while moving to a Toolbar button, the focus is switched to another document and the command is sent to the wrong editor.

Your help is appreciated.
