    Two Line Tooltip?

    The ControlTipText property is a linear sort of affair. Is it possible to make the tooltip display in two or more lines?

    Try:

    <pre>strToolTip = "This is line one" & vbCR & "This is line two"</pre>


    Then at run time, assign strToolTip to the appropriate property.

    Tried that. Just puts a vertical bar between the strings.

    Dunno. But while you're at it, find out for me how to tell Word97SR2 NOT to display the tooltip for a GUI control BELOW the border of the application window.


    I have carefully sized my GUI to fit the available window, only to watch the tooltip appear as a fringe-dweller. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=vb&Number=32442&page=0&view =collapsed&sb=5>screen resolution</A>

    try control+shift when you're typing in the text in the property dialog.
