    tooltip problems

    i have a toolbar and I am trying to get tooltips to work on it. Aren't you supposed to just be able to type what you want into the prompt property and have it come up as a tooltip?

    I am using visual c++ .NET

    Has your toolbar got the TBSTYLE_TOOLTIPS style?

    Are you handling the TTN_DISPINFO notification message in your parent windows WM_NOTIFY handler?

    You may find it useful to read this page on toolbars as it includes examples ( see 'handling tooltips' section).
