thanks RP.

That was the first thing I tried. I thought it was something regarding 
the kFloatingWindowClass as all other window type it works.

However, it was the SetRect( helpRec.absHotRect, 0, 0, 0, 0 )
the help tag now displays, albeit way up in the corner of the palette 
window and not above the control. i was getting the buttons rect and 
but I think the offsets are all wrong.

I have to offset the HotRect in other windows by using

offset_v = window(_kFBstructureTop)
offset_h = window(_kFBstructureLeft)

anyhow, thanks again.
