MouseEnter event (Tooltip)

Hi,

I have created a motor component displaying motor faults on an Overview Page.As there is a number of motors that exist on the page I am trying to configure a tooltip event to indicate the number of motor that appears every time on the screen. My approach is by configuring a popup event every time a motor appears on the screen using the MouseEnter event to display the number of the particular motor. My question is, if there is not another approach to this, is there a way that the pop up label appears on the exact location of every motor component I have on the screen or would I have to do this individually in every single motor and try to find the exact location of every component?

The ‘Mouseover Text’ Property won’t work for you?

Is this something that I could use in perspective? Could you please explain how it works and where I could find this property?

Sorry, Perpsective wasn’t specified. We’re going to have to be more specific now that v8 is out. :slight_smile:

Yeah, maybe separate categories on this forum?

No problem. So is this not possible on perspective?

So far, I’m not seeing a way to parametize the popup location.

Can you add a label to your motor component? Then you can toggle it’s visibility when entering the area.

That is the plan b but I was wondering if I could find a less time/space consuming way to add a tooltip event on the motor component so It would instantly add this to all 60 motors I’m using. Thanks for your reply though.
