Hmmm.  (I've already suggested this in a previous question)

Look at the Notification Icon Sample.  That should tell you how to display tooltips for the icon.
I've just downloaded and tested the sample - you will see it operating if you use the menu to 'test' when the app is running.

AndyAinscow no doubt that your solution is working.

Now the question of how to put Trade Mark "tm" in the ToolTip string?

How should I put it in to C++ string?

How to put "type (ALT + 0153)" proposed by M-Manakhly into the string?

I am trying this in Visual Studio, but it is not working for me.

I am pressing ALT than 0 than 1 than 5 than 3.

It doesn't print anything.

Please advice
Try it here.  You need to keep the ALT key pressed for all four digits, the symbol should appear once you release the ALT key.


When I am keeping Alt pressed and typing this four digits, I just get 4 dings of bell and nothing typed.

Please advice.
Are you pressing the ALT key (left of space bar) or the AltGr key (right of space bar) ?
I tried both same effect, just bell.

Please advice.
