Is it possible to use advanced tooltips, like those available for ribbon bars, on normal toolbars or tabbed toolbars?

If so, how?

The toolbar tooltip currently can have only text. The ribbon bar tip has a caption, paragraph text and an icon. We plan to add support for the ribbon tooltip everywhere. At the moment you can display any window instead of built-in Prof-UIS tooltip windows (CExtPopupMenuTipWnd) over toolbar buttons or menu items. The HelpNotes sample application demonstrates how to display rich text control acting like a tooltip by handling the CExtPopupMenuWnd::g_nMsgItemCoveringNotification registered message.
