I need to pop up a warning message in the Edit Contol box when the user provides invalid input. How do I automatically display a tooltip message when button click but without hover mouse on the Edit control box in win32 application?

What I have tried:

I added a function for tooltip control. But the given message is shown only when I hover mouse on the Edit Control box.

Don't use a tooltip in that case, use a messagebox, or a label field in the dialog.

@Richard-MacCutchan Thank you for the prompt response. In my case, I need to prompt a warning message like "Balloon Tip" in the specific Edit Control box when pressing the button. How to do that?
