Hi all,

Is there a way to make ControlTipText to display on more than one line? I'd like to be able to provide more information than will display on a single line across the screen. I tried to set it in an initialize as follows, but it didn't work. It displayed empty boxes instead of inserting carriage returns and linefeeds:

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
ControlTipText = "This is a test" & vbCrLf & "of multiple lines" & vbCrLf _
& "within a ControlTipText"
End Sub

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Which control do you actually want the ControlTipText to appear over?

I'm not sure the code you posted will work for what you want.

Oops....sorry. I'd either assign it to a label or a textbox. I guess the code should have been something like this:

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Label1.ControlTipText = "This is a test" & vbCrLf & "of multiple lines" & vbCrLf & "within a ControlTipText"
End Sub

Is there a way?

Thanks,
