I love it... simple is better "who needs behaviors if you don't need 
behaviors" (hehe, though I still would like to know why it did not work...)

Right... mousewithin... i had my field blink 35 times at one point... 
I'll use this... only thing was I was putting all the tips in custom 
props for hte card rather than in individual controls. But I like your
