Hello.

Has anyone got any sample API code to show a ToolTipText when hovering over a comboxes dropdown list?

Thanks,
Paul.

Going to extend the drop down part of the combo box depending on the length of the combo items:

I would rather write the API into my project but this does allow me to add ToolTipText to standard controls so I'll award the points.

Thanks.
