Button's tool tip can't show on WinXP platform.
Posted on 2001-08-02
Hi! I have a question about tooltips. I wrote a program running on WinXP platform. I try to make my program look like "Windows XP Visual Styles", so I use a XML format file to invoke ComCtl32.dll version 6 to make it work. As a result, my program DOES look like Windows XP Visual Styles, but the tooltips on all buttons are gone... I find that it fails when I use "SendMessage(TTM_GETCURRENTTOOL, 0, (LPARAM)&ti))" (Note. ti is TOOLINFO data type). I got a NULL value for ti data structure. Anybody knows what is happening? Please help me out... Thanks in advanced.
p.s. the tooltips running on Win2000 is working properly.
