  • Tooltip example doesn't work on my pc...

    hi all,
    the souce code forum contains an example for creating tooltiptexts: http://www.powerbasic.com/support/pb...ad.php?t=22717
    i tried it but it doesn't work on my windows95-pc. the dialog with
    the 4 buttons show, but when i move the mouse pointer over the
    buttons, no tooltip texts appear...
    can anybody help...?

    i also would like to add this to the "ddt wishlist": a command to
    create tooltiptexts. something like this:
    control add tooltip hdlg&, ctrl&, text$

    kind regards
    eddy

    Tested and it works fine in win98. Have you made sure the paths
    are okay? Could be your version of COMCTL32.DLL doesn't support
    some commands. If not already done, install MS Internet Explorer
    version 4 or later, to get updated COMCTL32, etc. That usually
    fixes many problems in Windows95, since MS no longer cares to make
    things backwards compatible (tip - they are dropping support for
    Win95 next year, so maybe time to upgrade..

      Hi Borje,
      Paths seem to be ok. ComCtl32.dll is file version 5.81 and product
      version 5.50.4522.1800, so should be ok. I guess it will be
      something else in Win95 that's causing the problem...
      Thanks for your response!

        try my sample in http://www.powerbasic.com/support/pb...ad.php?t=10516
        unlike i used edwin's approach, it's built a little another.
