I am having some problems with HelpTags on Windows.

I want to have a HelpTag associated with a GroupBox (that contains some TextFields). I have added this help text in the IDE and compiled. In my Mac deployment this works perfectly, on windows nothing happens when I hover over the GroupBox.

Additional Information
1 - I have HelpTags for Popups and TextFields and they work as expected on both OS X and Windows XP
2 - I have a container control, this works as expected on OSX, but on Windows I need to assign the Helptag text to one of the specific elements in the containercontrol for it to display
3 - I have also tried assigning the HelpTag text at runtime on windows, this still does not work.


Does anyone know if this a known bug, or htere is something obvious i am missing?

Thanks.

It sounds like a bug to me but I see nothing in Feedback about HelpTags and the GroupBox. I'd report it.

Container Controls and HelpTags. Known issue: <feedback://showreport?report_id=8643>
