Tooltip

I display tooltip on listview columns when the contents are not visible completely. It so happens that in our application some of the columns can contain large amount of text. I use standard tooltip code for multiline which uses Windows API. Here is the problem: Let us say a list item is in the middle of the screen and it so happens that tooltip window is larger than half screen size. Then tooltip window continuosly flashes. It seems that when windows want to display the tooltip, depending on the size of the tooltip, the tooltip window is shown up or down from the cursor position, but in this case tooltip is more than half the screensize, then windows can't decide where to display it and it keeps flashing.

Any idea how this problem can be solved ?
thanks

I did not get the answer I am looking for. I don't know how to delete the question. If you could tell me how, then I can close some more unanswered questions. This forum is excellent and most of the time, my questions get answered.


thanks

sgarg,
You can finalize a question by
1) Accepting a comment as an answer
...or...
2) Posting a 0-pt question to Community Support, explaining what you want to do (Delete, split points, get a refund but not delete).

When you use this latter otpion, remember to include a link to the question or at least the Q number from the URL.
-=-=-=-==-=--=-=-=

But PLEASE consider this:  Experts will not add new suggestions or help you explore a problem further if you do not post replies!  For instance, to Richie_Simonetti's post, you might have said something like "thanks for the links, but they do not solve my problem because... (etc)."  This would have started a dialog and Richie_Simonetti might have been able to zero-in on a solution that would help you.  Before asking to delete a question, I suggest that you try that in each of your Questions in which you have not received a satisfactory solution.
