Hover Mouse Over Label To Get Status Info

Screen real estate is a precious commodity. Users want information quickly. Using a mouse-over or hover technique to alter the display of data is a valuable feature for users. Combining color with hover over techniques let's you provide at least four levels of data. Let users click on the label (control) to "drill-down" and get more specific data.

By sub-classing the label control (in this example) you can sink events (using the "WithEvents" keyword) for that control and manage how that control behaves.

This Access 2000 sample demonstrates mouse-over subclassing and continuous form-like behavior in an unbound form.
