    Force button prompt

    Hi Isomorphic,

    I'm trying to implement a scenario that a prompt (tooltip) of a button is presented to the user as a result of an action of another control and not when hovering it.
    I tried two options:
    1. use the button prompt and force present it by script.
    2. use sc.showPrompt and position it near the button.

    I believe the latter is the better option but I didn't find a way to handle that.

    Entirely different alternative is the use of CSS pseudo elements which seems to work well up to the point of z-index which makes the tool tip become hidden.

    I'm using SC v12.1p_2020-06-09


    Why wouldn't you just create a Canvas and style it to look like the hover and place it near the button?


      Thank you for your reply.
      That is one other possible solution, but i didn't want to (or didn't find a good way) handle the position properly, mainly on resizing or scrolling.

        Any ideas on how to handle that easy enough?


          We didn’t realize you still needed help..

          There are both resize and scroll events you can listen for on every Canvas.
