A tooltip is a small message that may appear if you point the cursor to something on your monitor screen. MainBoss uses tooltips to explain any situations that may be confusing.

For example, if you don't have appropriate security permissions, you may not be allowed to click certain buttons or fill in certain information fields. In this case, pointing the cursor to the button or the field produces a tooltip message explaining the situation (and telling what security roles you'd need in order to use the field or button).

Similarly, if you've filled in a field with an unacceptable value, MainBoss will display an error marker. Pointing the cursor to the error marker will display a tooltip explaining why the value is unacceptable. For example, MainBoss may expect the field to contain a date rather than what you've typed in.

If you're ever confused about MainBoss's behavior, use the cursor to obtain tooltips. These should help you figure out what's happening.
