With rev messages that are called very frequently, like mousemove, I generally do a test to see if the overhead of refreshing a field is really necessary.

on mousemove x,y
 	if the myLastTarget of fld "help field" <> the target then
 		put the helptext of the target into fld "help field"
		set the myLastTarget of fld "help field" to the target
	end if
end mousemove

But this is just habit and superstition on my part.

Opinions?
