Tool tip



I want to add some instructions to fill the data in the field. If I add text in tooltip , it shows when someone hovers over that field. I would like to appear when someone either clicks on that field or which is the other way to show it. Please suggest.

Hi @hiti ,

You can Use the Variable to set onClick.
Like, suppose the "OnSelect/OnChange" Property of Text Box, set the variable, and use the same variable for visibility.
See the reference -

Tooltips only work when the user hovers over the control.  That behavior cannot be changed.  As an alternative you can put an icon or a button on the screen and use UpdateContext({vis:!vis}) as its OnSelect property and put a label on the screen with the instructions and make its Visible property "vis".  Clicking the button will toggle the instructions.  Put UpdateContext({vis:false}) in the OnVisible property of the screen so the default will be that the instructions are not visible until the user selects the button._!.png
