Hi I've made a ToolTipCtrl

..
m_ToolTip.UpdateTipText("GoGo", ??? , this);
..

Whatever, I can't get the Hwnd ID of the ToolTip.. I need to get the CWnd* pWnd, of the ToolTipCtrl,, How can I get that ?

you don't need the Hwnd of the tooltip

m_ToolTip.UpdateTipText("GOGO",this,IDOK);

ShaunWilde is, of course, correct.  His method works because CToolTipCtrl is derived from CWnd, and can therefore be used in all situations where a CWnd is required.  The 'this' pointer therefore points to the correct CWnd.

I haven't checked this but if m_ToolTip is an instance of a CWnd derived class, the m_hWnd member of it would be the HWND, right?

So you should be able to do:

HWND hWnd = m_ToolTip.m_hWnd;

Yup, that would get the handle.  But win32 is trying to get the handle in order to set the text, and ShaunWilde gave him/her a better method.

> HWND hWnd = m_ToolTip.m_hWnd;

yes they did seem to ask for the HWND of the tooltip but the method they gave as a sample is used to set a tooltip for a particular control - I am guessing that we had a bit of alanguage problem here in phrasing the question or that win32 didn't realise that a CTooltipCtrl can be used to show tooltips for more than one control at a time - I am also guessing that the CToolTipCtrl is also being hosted by a class that is derived from CWnd (eg CWnd,CDialog or CView etc) - a reasonable assumption I hope

Could be.  As you and I both know, users don't always say what they mean or mean what they say...  

I'm not 100% clear on what the point is here in this Q.

It would be nice in win32 would come back online and clarify a bit.

True, the trick is to write "this", to get the ToolTip attacked to the window I wanna work with. Thats it!

Simply writing it like this:
m_ToolTip.UpdateTipText(ToolText.c_str(), this, 0);
works fine!
