    [RESOLVED] YA disabled control tooltip issue

    I know the topic of tooltips not showing for disabled controls is very "mature", and I'm reluctant to ask, but after looking at 100's of search hits, on this forum, MSDN, and others, I'm stuck.

    I see there are some workarounds for MFC and WinForms and other programming styles that I don't use, but for Win32 API code, nothing found. I basically understand why this happens (disabled controls don't get messages), but my experiments are all failures. I'm using VC8 IDE.

    For example, handling the dialog WM_MOUSEMOVE, checking ChildWindowFromPoint(), if disabled control then SendMessage(hWtip, TTM_RELAYEVENT, ...). I don't understand why this doesn't work. I'm ready to believe the older Win32 TOOLTIPS_CLASS windowproc must check the state of the control and ignore disabled ones.

    I hope someone can point me in the right direction. I mean something more specific than "check the CodeGuru controls section", which is a dead end (for API solution). Help, I'm dying here .
