Hi Klaus,

Thanks... I think I figured out an alternate solution, but at the field
level as you suggested:

on mouseMove
  get the mouseText
  if the mouseText = "objects" then
    show field "Objects"
  end if
  if the mouseText <=> "objects" then -- not equals sign
    if the visible of field "Objects" is true then
      set the visible of field "Objects" to false
    end if
  end if
end mouseMove
