I'm showing a tooltip like window when the user moves the cursor over the client area. The tooltip is my own CWnd derived class, because I need to display multiline information.
I want the window to disappear when the cursor moves outside the client area. I tried using SetCapture, but I don't get any WM_MOUSEMOVE messages when the cursor moves outside the client area.
The toolbar manages to hide it's tooltip when the cursor moves outside the toolbar, so it should be possible I guess. If you've got some pointers on how to solve this, it would be great.
