mouseover event pop-up description question

Hi,

I'm rather new to CRM, so I hope this is not a newbe question. I have
looked for the answer online and in the "Working with Dynamics CRM 3.0 book"
but haven't found it.

In Dynamics CRM 4.0, when a user hovers the mouse over a form element name,
the displayed field name reappears as a mouseover tooltip. That is not
helpful. I'd rather have it display the field attribute's description.

I did find an unsupported solution to customizing the mouseover event help
window here, but that involves customizing each field, which I'd rather not
do.

http://blogs.msdn.com/crm/archive/20...tive-help.aspx

What I would like it to do is bring up the description text found in the
attribute description every time throughout the form. If the mouseover help
needed to be updated, it would be done in the data attribute description
field. That way the mouseover help is truly helpful.

Is there a global setting someplace to change the default behavior of
redisplaying the field name to instead display the attributes's description?

Thanks,

Jeffrey

RE: mouseover event pop-up description question

Hi Jeffrey,

I totally agree with you. I have been searching for a while for a solution
but haven't found much. We have considered creating a webservices which gets
the description from the database directly, but we haven't done it. We are
afraid that the performance of the forms will drop considerably because of
all the webservice call.

The use of the description field in the mouse over would be a great feature.
I hope it will be in a future release.
