    Text control as ES_NUMBER

    Hi, ALL,
    I am trying to create a text control that will only accept numbers and so I used the style ES_NUMBER.
    Everything is built and ran fine.

    But when I tried to enter a character, the tooltip showed up saying:

    Unacceptable character
    You can only type the numbers here
    Is there a way to suppress this tooltip?

    Thank you.

    Yes, I did. And I did include the manifest file (embedded into an executable).

    Thank you.

    I'm on Windows 8.1 with MSVC 2017 Community.

    One question though - is there a difference between defining and not defining ISOLATION_AWARE_ENABLED?

    Thank you

    Regarding ISOLATION_AWARE_ENABLED. Is your app a COM app or does it host COM objects?

    Hi,
    Des this message has to be handed in WindowProc()?
    Because it looks like I did it inside the MSWOnNotify()...

    Thank you.

    1. What is MSWOnNotify?
    2. What message do you mean? If it is EM_HIDEBALLOONTIP, then no, it is not a notification message. It is the message you are to send to the edit control.

    I asked because the ISOLATION_AWARE_ENABLED docs indicate this flag is related to COM apps (only).

    Yes, it works for me as well.
    I just did handle it as a notification message instead of a regular one.

    Sorry for the noise.

    Thank you.
