When I try to get tool tips to work in a modal dialog using the tooltip control and overriding on
PreTranslate message it works as described, but when I make the dialog Modal less it doesn't display any
tooltips. The PretranslateMessage method never gets called. Any ideas on how to get this to work?
This will work fine unless you display a modal dialog from the dialog you have added tooltips to. This is a
Microsoft bug and can be found in the MS knowledge base article ID: Q143313. This affects MS Visual C++
versions 4 - 6.0. The fix is simple, just add a call to activate your tooltip control prior to calling the
relayevent method in your PreTranslateMessage implementation.
