I don't have a no mouse system either in this moment, but it looks quite 

Without the OnClick event you suggested, the hint did disappear or not 
show it I was too quick when I was clicking the control.
With it the hint either stays there or shows. Tomorrow at work I'll test 
on the real system, but I'm confident.

Thanks a lot Mattias!
