Hi! This is a Windows program. Not just a plain C++. Here is the list of all C++, header and resource files. I couldn't figure out why the tooptip of the toolbar refuses to show. It doesn't seem to send TTN_NEEDTEXT notification message to the parent window.

Here is the list of codes.

Please advise.

I don't think it will ever receive the TTN_NEEDTEXT messages as the toolbar has its own tooltip handling mechanism if you use the TBSTYLE_TOOLTIPS flag. It will send a TBN_GETINFOTIP message instead of TTN_NEEDTEXT through a WM_NOTIFY message if I'm not mistaken. Try catching that message instead.

I think TTN_NEEDTEXT should work too. Since I made a similar program using TTN_NEEDTEXT, it works. Why this time it doesn't work?

I tested TBN_GETINFOTIP message, it doesn't seem to get this notification message either.

I found the reason is that I only process the messages from the main window.

     while (GetMessage(&msg, g_hwnd, 0, 0) > 0)

I need to change it to:

     while (GetMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0) > 0)

So I process messages from all windows.
