View Full Version : [FIXED] Tooltip dismiss delay 0 throws IllegalArgumentException

Hi. I've been having the problem that when I set the dismissDelay in 0, so that the tooltip never hides automatically, the program throws me the following exception:

[ERROR] Uncaught exception escaped
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: must be positive

You should setAutoHide(false) to stop the hiding of the tooltip. There was a bug with auto hide. The fix is in SVN.

Ok, I understand. But what I wanted is that the tooltip didn't hide after a few seconds, but hide after the user leaved the DataView item. I already fixed the issue by setting the dismissDelay to -1, but I think the API documentation is wrong, because it says to set the dismissDelay to 0 to stop the automatic hiding, but that makes the schedule() method throw an exception.
