More easy points: How to disable hints on TreeViews

I am using a TTreeView component on my project and I can't seem to find a way to disable the Hint property on it. When the mouse moves over any node it displays that node's caption as a hint. I have tried EVERYTHING to disable this with no luck. From the Object Inspector I set ShowHint and ParentShowHint properties to FALSE. I even tried adding an Application.OnHint handler and checking if the control is a TTreeView. Is there some UNDOCUMENTED MAGIC about this that i'm not aware of ?

Workaround:

  Style := GetWindowLong(TreeView1.Handle, GWL_STYLE);
  Style := Style or $0080;  // See in MSDN for other constants
  SetWindowLong(TreeView1.Handle, GWL_STYLE, Style);
