This method is supported in Windows Vista and later.

Additional requirements for this method are described in Build Requirements for Windows Vista Common Controls.

Use the CNetAddressCtrl::SetAllowType method to specify the types of addresses that the current network address control can support. Use the CNetAddressCtrl::GetAddress method to validate and parse the network address that the user enters. Use the CNetAddressCtrl::DisplayErrorTip method to display an error message infotip if the CNetAddressCtrl::GetAddress method is unsuccessful.

This message invokes the NetAddr_DisplayErrorTip macro, which is described in the Windows SDK. That macro sends the NCM_DISPLAYERRORTIP message.
