Hi,

say ur view is CMyView. then open MyView.h and add
CToolTipCtrl m_tool;

Then in the OnInitialUpdate
BOOL CMyDlg::OnInitialUpdate()
{
      .....
                .....
      
      // Create tooltip object
      m_tool.Create(this);

      // Add tooltip to the control
      m_tool.AddTool(GetDlgItem(IDC_VIN),"Vin");

      // TRUE to show tooltips,FALSE to disable tooltips
      m_tool.Activate(TRUE);       
                ......
                .....
}

where IDC_VIN is the ID of button control.

The in PreTranslateMessage
BOOL CMyDlg::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
      m_tool.RelayEvent(pMsg);      
      .......
                .......
}

Thats it. Hope this helps.
