do u mean the even will open the help file ? if so then that's not what I want, if u have Visual C++ open the Class Wizard dialog and right click at the bottom part and select "What's this" it bring up a yellow background message, that's what I want and if u know how please give me some sample code to display a message "blah blah blah" assume that the context menu (right mouse menu) is already there
