We coded the following test project for you:

You may need to add the <b>res/manifest_x86.xml</code> additional manifest file option and specify the PROF_UIS_FORCE_NO_MANIFEST resource preprocessor symbol if you are going to compile it with Visual Studio 2005 or later version.

The grid controls support tooltips and expanding features for grid cells. The tooltip window is displayed near grid cell. The content expanding window is displayed exactly over grid cell and location of cell text inside cell. Both windows are displayed automatically when the grid cell’s text is displayed partially. Unfortunately, the grid controls currently does not support independent cell tooltips with custom text. I.e. there is no tooltip support similar to tooltips of toolbar button. But you can display tooltips manually. You can handle the standard WM_MOUSEMOVE message your grid class, hit test the cells which should display tooltip and display the standard tooltip control for them or the CExtPopupMenuTipWnd control.
