The custom tooltip that described here 

http://pbsite.milente.nl/pbtip015.html

does not work when compiled in 64-bit. Any idea? 

 

Thanks,

Yuri

Hi Yuri;

   That old API is ANSI based and also only for 32 bit Apps. If you use the ToolTip property features of the newer PB versions, this should work properly ibn the 64bit realm, as follows:

Running as a 64 bit EXE ...

 

     Note: The only negative aspect is that the ToolTip feature only works with DataWindow controls. So you would have to replace all your standard controls with DW equivalents.

Thank you Chris for reply,



I am not sure what do you mean by "So you would have to replace all your standard controls with DW equivalents." Is it a joke?



If I have let's say, treeview, how would I replace it to DW?

comctl32.dll - i assume that is 32 bit.  you are running 64 bit.

instead, just use the built in tool tip

Mike,



The number "32" in file name does not mean that dll is for 32 bit. You can find 64-bit version of it under Windows\SysWOW64
