Hover over read-only property "Smart Tip" doesn't work



When attempting to add a hover action to "Show Smart Tip", the Smart Tip does not appear if the control it is applied to is set to Read Only. The Smart Tip is visible once the control is switched to Editable.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a section
2. Drag a Text Property control with any property (e.g .pyID)
3. Set "Read Only" on the property
4. Set up Event Hover with Action "Show Smart Tip" and hard code any plain text.
5. When hover over the property

Root Cause

The applicability of the action set is "Editable," so the action is only fired when applied to an Editable control.


Change the applicability of the action set to Read-Only or Both.
