I have derived CSliderNew from CSliderCtrl that can handle both integer and decimal numbers. I would like to know how to replace the CSliderCtrl's tooltip for decimal numbers? Is there a way to intercept the tooltip event and change its text string?

you can get the tooltipctrl using GetToolTips from there you may be able to change the tip text

Hi!
you can handle TTN_ notifications from tooltip:
for example:
in the class CMySliderCtrl add this:

virtual BOOL OnNotify(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM, LRESULT* pResult);
// and implmentation
BOOL CMySliderCtrl::OnNotify(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam, LRESULT* pResult)
{
     NMHDR* pnmh = (NMHDR*)lParam;
     *pResult = TRUE;
     static bool bReentrant = false;
     if (pnmh->code == TTN_SHOW && !bReentrant)
          {
          bReentrant = true;
          char szText[80] = "";
          TOOLINFO ti;
          memset(&ti, 0, sizeof(ti));
          ti.cbSize = sizeof(ti);

          ::SendMessage(pnmh->hwndFrom, TTM_ENUMTOOLS, 0, (LPARAM)&ti );
          //::SendMessage(pnmh->hwndFrom, TTM_GETTOOLINFO, 0, (LPARAM)&ti);
          ti.hinst = AfxGetInstanceHandle();
          ti.lpszText = szText;
          int nPos = SendMessage(TBM_GETPOS);
          sprintf(szText, "%4d.0", nPos); // just add zero after decimal point.
// you can implement your own formatting
          ::SendMessage(pnmh->hwndFrom, TTM_UPDATETIPTEXT, 0, (LPARAM)&ti);
          bReentrant = false;
          return TRUE;
          }
     return CSliderCtrl::OnNotify(wParam, lParam, pResult);
}
