How to implement the "TOOLTIPTEXT_BASE" section of gauges.h?

Recommended Posts

A few quick questions...hopefully a simple answer! LOLI'm just starting to experiment dynamic tooltips in FS2002 C-gauges, and am wondering about the "TOOLTIPTEXT_BASE" and following entries in gauges.h.Do these just create pre-formatted text for tooltips, or do they monitor and display the value of their corresponding VARs when used?Can someone give a rough example of how and where they should be used? I assume they would be used in the MOUSE_TOOLTIP_ARGS portion, but am not sure. Thanks!Mike

I assumeMOUSE_TOOLTIP_ID(HELPID)MOUSE_TOOLTIP_3ID(HELPID, HELPID_METRIC, HELPID_US)(short versions of MOUSE_TOOLTIP_TEXT_MACRO(...)) are the right ones, without the need of a MOUSE_TOOLTP_ARGS section.They should also be usable with the MOUSE_TOOLTP_ARGS, try out the ones with "ID" in the name of functions or maps.Arne Bartels
