Is there any way to get a tooltip to split on to separate lines ? I don't want to have to mess about with pretend tooltips (it's only for a demo). I've tried the vbCrLf option.

I want to add Vbcrlf to tooltips, but they show up as boxes, the code is correct....

How can I code something to show a tooltip when I want? How can I format the tooltip to make somethings be bold or italic?
Thanx in advance!
You know when you hover your mouse over a variable while debugging it shows the current value of that variable as a mouse ToolTip.
Is there any settings for this feature as I recently got a new PC but the ToolTips take a good 5 seconds to appear which is extremely frustrating
Tooltips On Top?
I have a form that is constantly (every 5 seconds) being set to float above all windows with the SetWindowPos API. On this form is a toolbar with Tooltips.
My problem is that if the timer is turned on, the tooltips don't show up. (I'm guessing they are falling behind the form). Only when I turn off the timer do they show up. Is there any way I can keep them on top of my floating form?
I've been making a little module that allows a developer to easily create an alternative to the standard windows tooltip. It is far from finished, but it is at the stage where comments and suggestions would be useful.
At the moment it only works with 1 form, but this will soon change.
It's main feature (what i created it for) is to fade in the tip, instead of just showing it, it works by looking at how often the user hovers over a control, and how often they just use what they need. This is used to workout how fast to fade in the tip.
I plan to have this kept in a file, so that the infomation is persistant, although this isn't implimented yet.
So what do you all think?
NOTE: This only works with NT, due to the alpha-blending API
ToolTips In VB
I am using tooltips to display extra data for a grid.
Does anyone know how I can force a CR in ToolTipText?
Is is possible to have a tooltip that appears on more than one line, for example I've got a list box with a list of names in. If I move the mouse over a user I want a tooltip to popup showing some information on the selected user, i.e.
User Name : Person selected in list box + vbNewLine
Age : Age of person + vbNewLine
Address : Address of person
I've tried using vbNewLine in the string but that just puts '|' this in the tooltip.
Any ideas ??
Does anyone know how it disable tooltips with API? I would like users to have the option to turn on/off tooltips and I don't want to have to worry about turning each one on and off.

Im having some trouble and was wondering if someone out there could help
Im working on a project in VB 6.0 and I need to be able to use tooltips on

the chart,(without click event).
How do I go about it?
New Tooltips Without Parentcontrol?
i need to bring up tooltips for several (fix!) positions at my form but there are NO Forms or Controls within which i could bind to a tooltip.
I drawed the objects with line-function.
Best would be something like the tooltip function which can be placed on top at a fixed position. All ToolTip Classes i found need to be bound to a control.
Sure,i could write a special form (show, hide) for this but maybe there are better solutions with api (faster, and resizing by itself)?
Tooltips With Labels
I can't seem to find this while searching this forum, probably not using the right search terms.
I have a small monitoring program running by the bottom of the screen, very narrow, and I want quick additional info to appear when hovering. I have the tooltiptext set, but the info I want to hover over is in Labels. I added tooltiptext to one textbox I had and that works, but the tooltip will refuse to display when associated with a label. I kinda like putting the numbers in labels, so they can't have focus and the cursor won't appear if clicked. Am I doing something wrong?
I would like to know what customization is possible with tooltips. Let me explain... I have seen numerous applications (many of which appeared to be made with visual basic) contain tooltips that consist of a light grey box with (on one end) a yellow area containing an arrow that points toward the component to which the tooltip belongs, is there anything like this that is possible in visual basic?
if my explanation is unclear, you can download a demo copy of WebZip from:
Faster ToolTips ??
Is there any way to reduce the time before showing tooltips when mouse is moved over a control?
I need that because I calculated that everybody moves mouse out of controls in my app before tooltip is shown, and tooltip contains important information which should be read.
Ive seen some custom tooltip controls, but it's needed to specify tooltip text for each control in code, and that's too hard, since there's a large number of controls in my app.
Has anyone seen a control which, inserted on form, replaces all standard tooltips, without large amount of code needed ?
(Or does anyone have some other idea ?)
A Label And Tooltips.
I have a label that might get its caption set to a value that will go longer than the labels width. When this happens I want to put ... on the end, cut it down to fit with the ... and then on mousemove show a tooltip of the full caption. Anyone have any simple code for this?
What I want to do is add a tooltip to a line. Since the line control has no events, this is a bit difficult. So I made a user control, added a line to it, and added a bunch of code to allow the user to move, resize etc the line. However, the user control doesn't have a tooltip property either.
So is there a way to make the user control (or line control) pop up a tooltip? I suppose I could make my own, with a label etc but I'd rather use the built in windows tooltip control. My initial research indicates that a tooltip control exists for VC++ but I've no idea how I would call it from VB. It seems to be some kind of window class....
Any ideas? I'd prefer to have the tooltip on the usercontrol but alternative solutions are fine. The main criteria is that a tooltip pop up over a line that can be at any angle...

I have posted a question similar to this before, but I have been seeing them more and more...
does anyone know how to customize the appearance of tooltips?
IE: Add neat-looking arrows in one side of the tooltip, make multi-line, change colors etc...
or should I try to construct my own tooltips using labels or other controls? If so, how would I code the mouseovers etc....
Is there a way to disable tooltips from appearing while editing in Visual Studio 2002? They appear ALL the time and they're getting rather annoying. Attached is an image of an example.
I'm using Visual Studio 2002 in Windows XP. I honestly don't know if it's just VS, or XP in general. I've searched all over VS's help and googled everywhere I could think of.
I hope this is the right forum to post this question. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Help With Changing Tooltips!
Hello! I'm not sure whether I should be posting in the API forum, but this is my problem:
I've written a net-traffic monitor which works much like the standard windows dial-up monitor, but also logs all incoming/outgoing traffic in an access database.
Now I've got the thing in the system tray and I just wanted to add the functionality of the tooltip to it, just like the standard windows dial-up systray icon. The only trouble is that the tooltip will not update while you have the mouse over it. It will display the current 'Bytes sent: xxxx Bytes received: xxxx', but I want to beable to see the bytes ticking over while the mouse cursor remains over the icon!
I have seen programs that have changing tooltips, but I don't have any success using the Shell_NotifyIcon API call;
I'm setting .szTip to "Bytes received: xxx ..." etc (Part of the NOTIFYICONDATA type required by Shell_NotifyIcon) which is getting called as part of the Timer() event, but it still doesn't update the tooltip on the fly.
Please help me someone!
I'm setting the dwMessage parameter of Shell_NotifyIcon to &H0 to add the icon to the system tray, then subsequent calls made by the Timer() event set dwMessage to &H1 (Modify).
I've also just realised that the standard windows dial-up monitor doesn't update it's tooltip either!

Please Help Tooltips On Toolbar
hi Been using the Microsoft Toolbar control and My tooltips have been working fine but for some odd reason each time I Hover over the buttons nothing happens. Does anyone know why this may be happening Thanks.
I've got an application where I have tooltips on most all items, even labels. Within the VB environment, they show up, but the compiled version has 3 labels whose tooltips wont show up. Not sure why. Any suggestions?
I checked and these labels are enabled, so it's not a case of that somehow being set to false. Besides if that were the case, they wouldn't show up within VB when I run it, but under VB, they show up just fine.
This is VB6, by the way.
