Default Does anyone know of a tooltip() function in as? Something without using another mc?

I was just wondering if as had a tooltip function? I could make an mc that appears on(mouseover) but I'm working with dynamic ones, so that'd be a pain. Appreciate any suggestions.

You could make a tooltip class that used the drawing API to generate the tip.

Otherwise, there are a few tooltips available on various sites (there hsould be some in the 'movies' section here, also try http://www.flashcomponents.net/ and I think sephiroth had a decent one at http://www.sephiroth.it/ )

Okay, cool. I was also thinking that I could dynamically create a textfield over the image at inception, set it be invisible, and then attach an event to the image that tells this clip to show up. That might do it. I also told them that they should just have a message under the scrollpane that contains the images that says "click image to enlrage" or whatever. Some people don't hink to put there mouse over an image :-) It's simple, but garunteed to get the point across. Thanks.
