Hi,
I have a dynamically created toolbar with a few buttons on it,
and I want to assign a tooltip to each of these buttons in run-time! How do I do it???
 
B.T.W The id's of these buttons are also created in run-time so I cannot use the resource editor help...
 
Thanks in advance
 
Yoav Stahl.

Search for TTN_NEEDTEXT in the online help. Basically, you need to set up the tooltip by calling EnableToolTips(TRUE) and then respond to this message. If you search for TTN_NEEDTEXT in the online help, you will come across an article on how to do this.

Hi,

Dynamically means, even buttons also u have created dynamically?. Can't go for using the resource editor?. Just U can insert a toolbar give it Ur own ID, and add the buttons and then do

bar = new CToolBar;
      if (!bar->Create(this) ||
            !bar->LoadToolBar(IDR_MY_TOOLBAR))
      {
            TRACE0("Failed to create toolbar\n");
            return ;      // fail to create
      }
      
      bar->SetBarStyle(bar->GetBarStyle() |
            CBRS_TOOLTIPS | CBRS_FLYBY | CBRS_SIZE_DYNAMIC);

      bar->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);

here bar is the pointer of CToolBar. Then U can set the tooltips also at the design time!!!.

Try it out.
