From textmgr2.idl:

HRESULT IVsSmartTagTipWindow::GetSizePreferences(
   [out] const RECT *prcCtxBounds,

Implementations should be written to handle cases where the size preference returned here is not the same as the actual real estate available to display content. (that is, cases where it may not be possible to provide the tip window in the requested size). The prcCtxBounds parameter represents the bounding rectangle of the tip's context, for use if needed by the implementation. This rectangle is provided in screen coordinates.
