I would like to suggest a two additional features for Tooltip in Ahk_L.
1. Auto close Tooltip.As you know, at the moment in Ahk_L (and Ahk Basic), the way to close a Tooltip after a specific time is through using SetTimer to go to a Label which contains something like...
ToolTip, This will close in 3 seconds [color=red]SetTimer, LABELNAME, 3000[/color] Return [color=red]LABELNAME: SetTimer, LABELNAME, Off ToolTip Return[/color]I would like to suggest a time option. So something like...
ToolTip [, Text, X, Y, WhichToolTip, [color=red]CloseAfter[/color]]"CloseAfter" Options
...... Time in mili-seconds (ms)
2. Moving Tooltips (Personally, I find them more helpful)When a Tooltip appears, it's usually static. I prefer them to follow the Mouse where ever it goes. This is more effective and helpful (personally). Therefore I would like to suggest something like...
Instead of "X, Y" marked in Green:
ToolTip [, Text,[color=green] X, Y, [/color]WhichToolTip, [color=red]CloseAfter[/color]]Have instead a "Behaviourc" option, marked in Green:
ToolTip [, Text,[color=green] Behaviour[/color], WhichToolTip, [color=red]CloseAfter[/color]]"Behaviour" Option (Specify one of the following):
Option 1 ... Xn Yn
...... X = X-Axis position,
...... Y = Y-Axis position,
...... n = Actual Coordinates of X/Y Axis respectively.
Option 2 ... FollowMouse
...... Follows the Mouse.
Option 3 ... Static
...... Displays Tooltip at the current Mouse coordinates.
Please comment AND vote on these suggestions
Thanks in advance.
