Tooltip to a button

Recommended Posts

Sorry, but i''m not really sure what a tooltip is. I think it is what I call a over_button_thingy, the tip that comes up when you are over a button.Is that what you mean?

Well, I''d get the location of the button. Then I''d find the width and height and store it in a RECT. Then get the curser pos and test if its in the rect. If it is, I''m not really sure whats next. Maybe a popup window with text inside?

That is almost exactly what a tooltip are. But the problem is that you can´t test if the cursor is inside the rect because when the cursor is over a button you get no mouse move message.
