Tooltip for the operating system in Flash

advertisements

How do you use the operating system's tooltip utility in Flash with Actionscript 3? An analogous invokation of the OS tooltip is in HTML's anchor tag:

<a href="foo.html" title="awesome website">click</a>

I don't want to draw my own custom tooltip because (A) it will look inconsistent across operating systems, (B) long tooltips wouldn't be able to float out of the SWF, and (C) it takes time to program (whether to align left or right depending on how close you are to a boundary).


you can use your <a href="foo.html" title="awesome website">click</a> as TextField.htmlText
