    Tooltips (XP)

    Hi, I have a custom menu with 5 buttons, 1 of which is a menupopup with a further 5 buttons in a dropdown list. I have set the tooltips though VBA for all buttons, but they wont display on those on the dropdown list [img]/forums/images/smilies/sad.gif[/img] They display fine on the others, and any changes i make to them through VBA are updated. I just can't see why the tooltips on the dropdown list wont display !

    Is there any reason anyone knows why this should happen?
    Thanks,

    I don't think items on a popup list ever show tooltips. The built-in (sub)menu items don't show tooltips either.

    Ok. It is interesting that the dropdown buttons like the borders and colour menus do have tooltips.

    Not sure we're talking about the same thing now. A popup/dropdown button on a toolbar/menu bar should display a tooltip, but if you click it, the items on the dropdown do not display tooltips.

    Sorry, I mean on the toolbar icons with the multiple choices, like the borders and colours icons.

    If I'm wrong, I'm sure someone else will correct me, but as far as I know, not all features of command bars are available in VBA.
