Tooltip Styles

This section lists the control styles used with tooltip controls.

ConstantDescription
TTS_ALWAYSTIP

Indicates that the tooltip control appears when the cursor is on a tool, even if the tooltip control's owner window is inactive. Without this style, the tooltip appears only when the tool's owner window is active.

TTS_BALLOON

Version 5.80. Indicates that the tooltip control has the appearance of a cartoon "balloon," with rounded corners and a stem pointing to the item.

TTS_CLOSE

Displays a Close button on the tooltip. Valid only when the tooltip has the TTS_BALLOON style and a title; see TTM_SETTITLE.

TTS_NOANIMATE

Version 5.80. Disables sliding tooltip animation on Windows 98 and Windows 2000 systems. This style is ignored on earlier systems.

TTS_NOFADE

Version 5.80. Disables fading tooltip animation on Windows 2000 systems. This style is ignored on earlier Windows NT systems, and on Windows 95 and Windows 98.

TTS_NOPREFIX

Prevents the system from stripping ampersand characters from a string or terminating a string at a tab character. Without this style, the system automatically strips ampersand characters and terminates a string at the first tab character. This allows an application to use the same string as both a menu item and as text in a tooltip control.

TTS_USEVISUALSTYLE

Uses themed hyperlinks. The theme will define the styles for any links in the tooltip. This style always requires TTF_PARSELINKS to be set.

Remarks

A tooltip control always has the WS_POPUP and WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW window styles, regardless of whether you specify them when creating the control.
