Tip-Static control like 'Outlook Today's Tip'

Sample Image

Environment: VC6 SP2, NT4 SP5, CE 2.11, Windows Y2K

This Tip-Static control very smoothly show and hide Today's tip.
I think this control is so simple and useful.
Just use it!!

Usage

  1. Include TipStatic.cpp and TipStatic.h in your project.
  2. Create a new CTipStatic class object and just invoke Create function.
    
    	In your header file.
    	
    	#include "TipStatic.cpp"
    	
    	class CMyDialog : public CDialog
    	{
    	
    	....
    	// Attributes
    	protected:
    		CTipStatic m_ctrTipStatic;
    		
    	};
    	
    	
    	In your cpp file.
    	
    	int CMyDialog::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct) 
    	{
    		if (CDialog::OnCreate(lpCreateStruct) == -1)
    			return -1;
    	
    		m_ctrTipStatic.Create("TipStatic",WS_VISIBLE|WS_CHILD,
    			CRect(10,10, 100,120),this, IDC_TIP_STATIC);
    
    		....
    			
    		return 0;
    	}
    
  3. Initialize CTipStatic class object by using AddTip(), SetSliderColor(), SetSliderMode().
    
    	BOOL CStaticTipDlg::OnInitDialog()
    	{
    		CDialog::OnInitDialog();
    		
    		....
    
    		// TODO: Add extra initialization here
    	
    		// Add Tip..
    		m_ctrTipStatic.AddTip("Hi\n Welcome to Cool-Tip Static!!\n\nSmile Seo");
    		m_ctrTipStatic.AddTip("Second.. Tip");
    		m_ctrTipStatic.AddTip("Third.. Tip");
    
    		m_ctrTipStatic.SetSliderColor(GetSysColor(COLOR_3DFACE));
    		m_ctrTipStatic.SetSliderMode(TRUE);
    
    		....
    		
    		return TRUE;  // return TRUE  unless you set the focus to a control
    	}
    
  4. Just call ShowNextTip() or ShowPrevTip().
