Part IIB: Intermediate Workshops > Creating a ToolTip Component

Workshop Chapter 9. Creating a ToolTip Component

In Workshop Chapter 2, “Creating Custom Cursors,” you learned how to position a clip instance precisely where the mouse moved. You also learned how to turn a clip instance into a component. This workshop chapter is similar to that one in that we’re going to move an instance to the mouse location, but it will be a text field rather than a cursor graphic. The result is a feature commonly known as a tooltip.

No doubt you’ve encountered tooltips in many software applications, including Flash. In this workshop chapter, we’ll add several features to our tooltip, including those common to system-level tooltips plus a few extra features that will make our tooltip unique. Naturally, the exact feature set for each instance of our component will be adjustable through the Parameters tab in the Properties panel.
