iChat 4 Pictures Buddy List

You are In:- iChat >> Versions >> iChat 4 >> iChat 4 Pictures Index >> iChat 4 Buddy List Index >> Mouse Over Info
5[5] 04 Mouse Over Info Nov 2008

 Changed. When you moused over a Buddy in previous versions of iChat a Tool tip used to appear. (Mouse over this picture and then hold still to see a tooltip). This used to display the Buddy's Screen Name and Status Message and little else - although if you had linked serveral Screen Names to the same Address Book Card it wouls shw you which of those were On-line or Off line and more than the 42 characters previous visible in the Status message.

Now a new style pop up appears. It shows a larger version of the Buddy's picture. It indicates if they are Available or Away. It will show you the full Screen Name. If you have linked multiple Screen Names then it will dispaly those as well and show if they are On-line or not.

Once you have paused long enough to get one Buddy's info to show up, you can move the mouse over other Buddies and get their info straight away with no delay
