No TTN_NEEDTEXT message with WinNT ?

When I'm running my application under Win95/98 the message TTN_NEEDTEXT is sent properly to change tooltip text in my application with ON_NOTIFY_EX(TTN_NEEDTEXT, 0, OnNEdText). If the same application is running under WinNT4.0 I don't get this message. Does anybody know why?

It may come from nt's unicode system, try replacing your line with these two:

ON_NOTIFY_EX(TTN_NEEDTEXTA, 0, OnNEdText)
ON_NOTIFY_EX(TTN_NEEDTEXTW, 0, OnNEdText)

Although strange, that behavior has been observed for other messages if my memory serves me correctly.

But how can I convert my strings to unicode? I tried it but no special chars are shown like ä ü ... for German!
