DataTip:  A DataTip contains a raster cell value or element information for vector, CAD, or TIN object.  For all objects except raster objects, you can designate the database table for use as a DataTip.  Place the cursor on the cell or element for which you want to see a DataTip and wait briefly.  DataTips operate in a manner similar to ToolTips.  The DataTip with the pertinent value or information appears adjacent to the cell or element.  In TNTmips, a virtual field can be used to produce a multiline DataTip for a single vector, CAD, or TIN object.  Such DataTips present information from multiple fields in one or more database tables.
