I can see how to style all the tooltips a particular way usin a styelsheet, but is there a way to do it for six to twelve colors of ToolTips in an application? Again, I can do it with the Tooltip Manager, but that is a bit cumbersome. Each tooltip needs to only take on the background color of the panel which contains it's textArea.
The object who's tooltip is being shown receives a TOOL_TIP_SHOW event
(among others). You might use that event to set a style on the tooltip.
Thanks for the insight to these events. I found a nice list of tooltip type events that will be good to know. I'm beginning to think however, that the tooltip manager is probably the best way to go for a large amount (several hundred tooltips in up to twelve colors) of tooltips.
