More information:
This package contains a .dll that encapsulates a number of API functions to allow you to create customized tool tips for any control. You can customize the tooltip by setting its background and foreground colors, the delay time and visible time, whether or not the tooltip is centered, and whether or not it appears as a balloon.

Also included is a sample project; be sure to register the .dll first before running it. The demo illustrates how to use the .dll with listbox, listview, command button, option button controls, treeview, label, and toolbar button controls (support for the latter three is new to version 2.0, which was first posted here on 02/25/01).
