Please, how is tool-tip handled for tab control?

Handling tool-tip for tool bar buttons is so easy. The following is a sample
code I used for an application?

case WM_NOTIFY://respond to tooltip request
    nmptr = (LPNMHDR)lParam;

    if(nmptr->code == TTN_GETDISPINFO)
    {
        TTtext = (LPNMTTDISPINFO) lParam;

        if(TTtext->hdr.code == TTN_GETDISPINFO)
        {
            switch(TTtext->hdr.idFrom)
            {
                case IDM_FIRST: TTtext->lpszText = _T("First page");
                    break;
                case IDM_LAST: TTtext->lpszText = _T("Last page"");
}

I think he/she is saying that it works for a button on a toolbar but not for a tab control.
