View list of data type meanings


This function lets you change the tooltip text for an existing hotspot.

For more information, see:


WindowName - the name of an existing miniwindow. Names are case-sensitive.

HotspotId - the hotspot id associated with this particular hotspot. Hotspot IDs are case-sensitive.

TooltipText - the text here is shown automatically if you "hover" the mouse over the hotspot for about a second. It is then removed after a few seconds. This is intended for help messages (maximum 999 characters). If there is a tab character (0x09) in the tooltip text, the text before the tab is considered the tooltip title (shown in bold on a separate line), and the rest of the text is the non-bold tooltip text.

Note: Available in version 4.41 onwards.

Lua example
WindowHotspotTooltip (win, "hs1",  "Click here to be cured")
Returns eNoSuchWindow - no such miniwindow
eHotspotNotInstalled - no such hotspot
eOK - completed OK
