How do I prevent a TTreeview from showing the hint?

I have all these and it still shows and stays for a long time covering items in the treeview.

   Form2.showHint := false;
   TreeView1.showHint := false;
   Application.HintHidePause := 1; // all hints show for 1mS

the 2 lines below are enough.
  TreeView1.ParentShowHint := False;
  TreeView1.ShowHint := False;

if "hint" means the tool tip you see when the item is too long, this should help:
  TreeView1.ToolTips := False;

Thanks  Ivanov_G,
Yes, and they appear even when the items are short and have plenty of room.

For ToolTips I get the error -  Undeclared Identifier : 'ToolTips'

The TTreeView and TTreeNode don't have a property 'ToolTips'.

It has, but in Delphi 7...

ToolTips property (TCustomTreeView)

Delphi syntax:
property ToolTips: Boolean;

Description:
Set ToolTips to true to specify that items in the tree view control have tool tips (Help Hints).
Specify the ToolTip text in an OnHint event handler using the Hint property.

Thanks  Ivanov_G,

I'll have to tackle this one another way.
