i need to implement the "mouseover" function in my dialog base software (i.e a small rectangle box will popup and display a short message when you leave the mouse cursor over a button/textbox/whatever)

I wonder if there is any easy way to do that? i've tried search the MSDN document but was confused and can't get it work... so anyone can show me how to do that??

I'm not familiar with it at all. But try to use ToolTip control associated with rectangular area of the window. And read about TTF_SUBCLASS flag. It will help you to have tooltips for free (i mean without processing mouse events).
Search for "ToolTip controls" in MSDN. They have couple of interesting examples in the "Using ToolTip Controls" section.

Best regards,
Pavlik.
