Hi zryip,
thank you and Mike, that is a helpful start. Datagrids a pretty complex.

With the dgDataControl you obviously can easily retrieve informations from
cells containing data. I would like to show a tooltip hovering the columns
header to show the user the full meaning of each column, because the column
label is a abbreviation, not self explaining. I have searched the livecode
lessons and the blue mango pdf, but didn't found yet an easy way to provide
such a tooltip. Even if there isn't a standard tooltip property, I didn't
find the right property to get the column name, when hovering the header.

Thanks for any ideas
Tiemo

Hi Tiemo,

dgDataControl is the property you are probably looking for.

Try this code in the datagrid group script:

on mouseMove
   put the dgDataControl of the target into tTheDataControl
   if (tTheDataControl is empty) then
      put empty
   else
     put "Column:" && the dgColumn of tTheDataControl && "Line:" && the
dgLine of tTheDataControl
   end if
end mouseMove


Best Regards,
