Drawing over top of it is just occlusion.
Yes, agree, but this is what have you said. Otherwise if the meter is hidden, then indeed tooltip isn't shown.

You can use ToolTipHidden option. When you show shape set ToolTipHidden=1 and when you hide it set ToolTipHidden=0.

That's not what I said though?

I said to hide it when you cover it so the tooltip doesn't show.

Sorry for late reply. I had a few days trip, and caught a cold...too bad. :-)

So, I finally got a workaround with reference to oZone. I have added a bang to hide tooltip when mouse hovers overlaying meter. Suc as;

Code: Select all

MouseOverAction=[!SetOption MeterClickableRegion ToolTipHidden 1][!UpdateMeter MeterClickableRegion][!Redraw]
MouseLeaveAction=[!SetOption MeterClickableRegion ToolTipHidden 0][!UpdateMeter MeterClickableRegion][!Redraw]
With this workaround, my days of repose have come. :-)
