• Just enter [CF_GetFieldAttributes ( Self ; 1 )] in the [Tooltip] calculation and you are ready to go.
• If you define [ShowFieldAttributes] as a global field you can switch it on and off (for all fields) as you please.
• With the controls {T1111} in the Field comments you can control what is displayed.
• Hope this Custom Function comes in handy. Hans Nagelgast, Oss The Netherlands

p.s. I modified the CF name. Was CF_Tooltip ( Fieldname ; ShowTooltip )
