  • At first blush it looks like you aren't accounting for the position of the form within the desktop itself. The ShowAt method uses the absolute X, Y position of the desktop rather than the relative position of any control or form.

    You have the latest SRP HTTP Framework. If you look at the NDW_HTTP_FRAMEWORK_SETUP_EVENTS event commuter you'll find how we handle this in the DisplayInfoHelp gosub. Pro tip: use the SRP_Get_Window_Rect service to make this a lot easier to calculate.
  • thanks Don, I will take a look
  • If you had an image, how would you calculate the size for the ole.size parameters?
    e.g.
    ToolTipHeading="Deceased Tab filled"
    ToolTip<1>=".\HelpImages\Funerals_ety-Deceased Tab.png"

    I might just create a form with a large picture control on it and use that as my 'popup'
