    yellow popup box with item description

    the question is symple, I hope the answer is symple too...
    how do I create those fancy yellow-boxes which pop up when your mouse pointer stays for more than one sec over a button (ex:internet explorer bar->back button)? (they usually contain a description for button's purpose).
    VisualC++ of course...

    Tooltips.

    Search this board for other examples but you would be doing yourself a favour by at least reading the 'overview' from that link.

    just didn't know their name, if I didn't know yours, knowing instead your character, I would have paraphrased It with "that $$$$ing proud and unpolite scottish", thanks anyway

    Ach, don't mention it, laddie.

    (sorry, no offence meant - I post a lot of links here which are sometimes skimmed/ignored and I just wanted to draw your attention to the first part of the 'tooltip' section' )

    Best not to attempt to judge someone's character by typed words, eh? Otherwise I might be tempted to assume you're a judgemental, surly racist.

    well, I apologize. Your link was just what I was looking for and I even used a wrong term when trying to insult you (paraphrased instead of periphrased), pointing out my poor english and my incorrect italian thoughts. I thank you again but there was nothing racist it was just:

    "$$$$ing proud" , "unpolite scottish"

    >>there was nothing racist<<

    I know - It was just a joke.

    Your written english is fine - and it is 'paraphrased', so your original insult was good; it made me laugh, anyway. So nothing wrong with those Italian thoughts, either. With the benefit of hindsight, I should have phrased my original suggestion better.

    Anyway, good luck with your tooltips - and welcome to cprogramming ( if no one else has said so).
