DESCRIPTION         

COXToolTipCtrl is an extended tooltip control that allows multiline tooltips,
plus extended tooltip text. Extended tooltip text is extra text that is 
displayed if the user clicks on the tooltip window. If the tooltip contains
extended text (as well as a standard tooltip string) then the info window
will contain a small arrow that prompts the user to click on the window. Once
the window is clicked, the extended text is shown. If the window is clicked 
again then the window reduces to show just the standard text.

The maximum width of the tooltips can be specified, and if the info text is
too big to fit within these bounds then the text will be wrapped over multiple
lines. The control also allows you to specify a different text and background 
colors for the tooltips, and the display font can also be changed.

Using ToolTipCtrlEx :

This class is a direct replacement for the CToolTipCtrl class. It incorporates
the entire API of the standard CToolTipCtrl, and introduces new features not
found in the standard tooltip.

The control is used just like any other tooltip control. To use the tool simply
call Create(...) and specify the parent window of the tool, then add tools to
the control using the AddTool(...) member function. 

eg. (In a formview or dialog)

     tooltip.Create(this)
     tooltip.AddTool(GetDlgItem(IDC_CONTROL), 
			_T("Tooltip text\rThis is the extended\ntooltip text"));

where ID_CONTROL is the ID of a control.

To specify extended text for a tooltip, simply append a '\r' after your tooltip 
text, and then append the extended tooltip info.

As with the standard tooltip control you can specify the actual text for the tool 
at creation time (as shown above), or you can specify the LPSTR_TEXTCALLBACK value 
and provide a TTN_NEEDTEXT handler to return the text dynamically at runtime.

To handle the TTN_NEEDTEXT message, you will need to add a message handler in the
parent window, and an entry in the message map;

eg. In your view or form

   BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CMyDlg, CDialog)
   ...
   ON_NOTIFY_EX( TTN_NEEDTEXT, 0, OnToolTipNotify)
   END_MESSAGE_MAP()

   BOOL CMyDlg::OnInitDialog()
   {
	      CDialog::OnInitDialog();

       tooltip.Create(this)
       tooltip.AddTool(GetDlgItem(IDC_CONTROL), LPSTR_TEXTCALLBACK);
       ...
    }

    BOOL CMyDlg::OnToolTipNotify(UINT id, NMHDR* pNMHDR, LRESULT* pResult)
    {    
        TOOLTIPTEXT *pTTT = (TOOLTIPTEXT *)pNMHDR;    
        UINT nID = pNMHDR->idFrom;
        
        if (nID == IDC_CONTROL) Fill in the text buffer
        {
            _tcscpy(pTTT->szText, _T("Tooltip text\rExtended tooltip text"));
            return TRUE;
        }
        
        return FALSE;
    }

You can also supply text two alternate ways, either by supplying a string 
resource

            pTTT->lpszText = MAKEINTRESOURCE(nID);
            pTTT->hinst    = AfxGetResourceHandle();            
            return TRUE;

or by supplying a pointer to the text:
        
            pTTT->lpszText = _T("Tooltip text\rExtended tooltip text");
            return TRUE;

Newline characters ('\n') can be embedded anywhere within the text or extended
text to produce a multiline tooltip. If the width of the tooltip window is
specified using SetMaxTipWidth() then the tooltip text will be wrapped to this
length, and if necessary displayed on more than one line.

To change the font of the tooltips simply use the SetFont member function. 

The GetToolInfo/SetToolInfo functions, and the HitTest functions are very
similar to the CToolTipCtrl versions except that they use a OXTOOLINFO
structure instead of a TOOLINFO structure. This structure is defined as

    struct OXTOOLINFO : public TOOLINFO
    {
    #if (_WIN32_IE < 0x0300)
       LPARAM    lParam;       Application defined value that is associated with the tool
    #endif
       int       nWidth;       Width of box, or 0 for default
       COLORREF  clrTextColor; text color
       COLORREF  clrBackColor; background color
    }

and is very similar to the standard TOOLINFO.  It is used in the same way,
with the exception that the uFlags member is not (yet) used.

To change the color of an individual tip, use the GetToolInfo/SetToolInfo
functions

   OXTOOLINFO ToolInfo;
   if (m_toolTip.GetToolInfo(ToolInfo, GetDlgItem(IDC_CONTROL)))
   {
       ToolInfo.clrBackColor = RGB(255, 255, 255);
       ToolInfo.clrTextColor = RGB(  0,   0, 255);
       m_toolTip.SetToolInfo(&ToolInfo);
   }



The ToolTipEx sample that demonstrates the functionality of the COXToolTipCtrl class 
can be found in the .\Samples\gui\ToolTipEx subdirectory of your Ultimate Toolbox 
directory.
