tooltip-delay

Arguments: configuration

Returns or sets with setf the value of the tooltip-delay property of configuration. The current configuration is the value of (configuration *system*) (see configuration and *system*). The value of this property is a positive integer, initially 1000. This value is used internally by a timer object whose name is :tooltip-timer.

A tooltip will only be displayed after the cursor has been over an object for the tooltip-delay number of milliseconds. However, once one tooltip has been displayed on a control containing sub-controls (such as a multi-picture-button), other tooltips on the same control will be displayed without a delay.

For example, if tooltips are displayed on your system at all, moving the mouse over a button in one of the toolbars in the Project Window displays the tooltip for that button after the delay. But then moving the mouse over other buttons on that toolbar causes their tootips to be displayed at once.
