Toolbar and Statusbar on Dialog

Environment: VC6 , Windows 98

This is an example of creating a Toolbar and Statusbar on a Dialog Window. I came across some project (I cannot remember by whom) and thought of developing a more Windows-like project.

Code for Creation of Toolbar

  m_pImageList = new CImageList;
  SetupImages(m_pImageList);

  TBBUTTON tb;

  m_ToolBar = new CToolBarCtrl;
  m_ToolBar->Create(WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|WS_BORDER|TBSTYLE_FLAT,
    CRect(0,0,0,0), this, 0);

  m_ToolBar->SetImageList(m_pImageList);
  tb.iBitmap = 0;
  tb.iString = NULL;
  tb.fsState = TBSTATE_ENABLED;
  tb.fsStyle = TBSTYLE_BUTTON;
  tb.idCommand = ID_HELP_ABOUT;

  m_ToolBar->AddButtons(1, &tb);
  tb.iBitmap = 1;
  tb.idCommand = ID_BOLD;
  m_ToolBar->AddButtons(1, &tb);
  tb.iBitmap = 2;
  tb.idCommand = ID_DRAWING;
  m_ToolBar->AddButtons(1, &tb);

  TBBUTTON tb1;
  tb1.fsStyle = TBSTYLE_SEP;
  m_ToolBar->AddButtons(1, &tb1);

  tb.iBitmap = 3;
  tb.idCommand = ID_STRIKEOUT;
  tb.iString = NULL;
  m_ToolBar->AddButtons(1, &tb);

Code for Creation of Statusbar

  m_StatusBar = new CStatusBarCtrl;
  m_StatusBar->Create(WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|SBT_OWNERDRAW,
    CRect(0,0,0,0), this, 0);

  int strPartDim[4]= {180, 260, 340, -1};
  m_StatusBar->SetParts(4, strPartDim);

  m_StatusBar->SetText(_T("Dialog / StatusBar / Toolbar"),0,0);
  m_StatusBar->SetText(_T("Example"), 1, 0);

  CString string;
  string.LoadString(IDS_MYCOMPUTER);
  m_StatusBar->SetText(string, 3 ,SBT_NOBORDERS   );
  m_StatusBar->SetIcon(3, 
               SetIcon(AfxGetApp()->LoadIcon(IDI_COMP),
               FALSE));

    The example given works fine. But now, we need to make the systems displays string table messages and popups when setting the mouse pointer on a push button or a menu item.

    What is the entry of the labyrinth for ? Were can we go to find an example. We were workin some weeks on the MSDN sample Dlgbcr32 who is rather complicated.
