I have an MFC application where I've created a status bar whose base class is CStatusBar and I created a status bar manager class. I've created several status bar items and everything in that respect looks good. I'm able to update text fine. However, when I set the tip text, nothing happens; I'm calling SetTipText(...). Shouldn't this show an html style help popup box with text inside? If so, why does mine show nothing when the mouse cursor hovers over an item?
Basically, I'm trying to show additional information when the cursor is over some status bar items. If 'm way off then can someone please tell me another approach?
