    Question Ballon Tips in C++ (Borland C++ Builder 6)

    I am using Borland C++ Builder 6. I would like to do away with ucky message boxes and repleace them with balloon tips when applicable.

    Does anyone know how to make balloon tips in Borland C++ Builder 6? I have looked around and have been able to find anything that would work (at least as far as I could understand).

    Thanks!

    If there had been something helpful in the help file, I wouldn't have come here.

    This is probably more appropriate to a windows programming forum (using C++ Builder) than to a C++ forum.

    You need to search more actively; in particular look at common properties of visual components.

    All visual components in the VCL have a Hint property. If the mouse is moved over the component, and a couple of other conditions are met (look up the ShowHint and ParentShowHint properties) a balloon will be shown with the hint text.
