InfoTip for HoverTip problem

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 20 years ago by Greg Shaffer - Boulder

I implemented a "hover tip" for many tokens in my document. To display the hover tip, I use an InfoTip with one entry. When the user presses the UP or DOWN arrow, the traversal is captured in the InfoTip, instead of the document. The behavior I'm looking for is that when the user presses an UP or DOWN arrow, the cursor moves in the document. I understand why the UP and DOWN keys capture in the InfoTip.

Do you have something for this type of behavior.

If not, my idea is that you create a HoverTip that allows the user's UP or DOWN keypress to mean something outside the HoverTip. Or, add a boolean value to InfoTip called "HideOnKeyPress", or add "PassArrowKey".

I can always just use a ToolTip for HoverTips.

So if we added a property on the info tip object that let you indicate whether you wanted the UP/DOWN keys to be captured or not, would that suffice?

That would be fantastic!
The latest build of this product (v24.1.0) was released 4 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
