I am building a menu in OnExtMenuPrepareOneLevel, and setting to each entry a custom tool-tip (which looks great by the way...)

However, when the item is disabled the tip is not displayed - I need to display an explanation by the item is disabled in the tip...

We implemented optional status tips and cool tips for disabled command items in popup menus. The following code turns on status tips for disabled menu commands:

CExtPopupMenuWnd::g_bShowStatusTipsOverDisabledItems = false;
The code below turns on cool tips for all the menu commands:
CExtPopupMenuWnd::g_bShowCoolTipsOverDisabledItems = false;
CExtPopupMenuWnd::g_eTtsClassicMenu = CExtPopupMenuTipWnd::__ETS_BALLOON;
