If it were possible, to make the Label apear instantly on hovering, it would be a nice expierience to watch them popping up and colapsing again, one by one, and you won’t have to wait for tooltip showing up to get the windows titleinfo - - Usefull for small screens and/or portrait view, especially on tablets & convertibles
