The only way i can think of is to create the coloured ToolTip Text as a Bitmap as you want it displayed.

Then you will have to create a new CToolTipCtrl class, and overload the Activate function to display a Bitmip rather than Text.

Hope this helps

Cool sedqwick but I think you missed the point,, I want 3 colors on the text in only one ToolText...

If your program can do the job, I just missed that part.

well, for 50 pts i can only suggest u to manipulate tooltiping manually, use gradient CStatic ctrl and timer for display your "static like tooltip" after say one second.

good luck
