XFM4ToolTip.ma is small lightweight program that displays a features XFM properties as a tooltip by your cursor.
At this time it will enable you to display the tool tip three ways:
1) Show all XFM properties
2) Show only a configured property. To do this, add the variable XFM_PROPERTY4TOOLTIP = PropertyName to your configuration. Note that the property name is case sensitive. You can add this configuration variable to your project schema, or add it to a keyin such as the following. This will allow you to switch to displaying different properties fairly easily. Note: This keyin assumes that the MDL is already loaded.
mdl unload xfm4tooltip;mdl load xfm4tooltip;expand set xfm_property4tooltip = Property_01
mdl unload xfm4tooltip;mdl load xfm4tooltip;expand set xfm_property4tooltip = Property_02
mdl unload xfm4tooltip;mdl load xfm4tooltip;expand set xfm_property4tooltip = Property_03
If the property does not have a Display Name defined, the word Tooltip is used as shown in the graphic above.
3) The default tool tip.
- The display of the level name is optional as indicated by the toggle in the dialog.
