Tooltips

Post by Morning Star » 2003 Oct 25, 04:07

Hi all,

Does anybody know if there is a way in x2 to turn of the tooltips that appear over a file if the mouse hovers there long enough (~1sec)?

It is just that it is a annoyingly slow for files on CDs... :(

TIA

left/right pane settings in the registry contain lvsExtendedStyle. Either remove LVS_EX_INFOTIP from the value or just copy the value from 2xExplorer's registry (assuming you have disabled tooltips there through View | Options)

Hi Nikos,

I have fixed it via 2xExplorer, but I was wondering - is there some there some SDK documentation that I'm missing?

I just ask because I have no idea what the numeric value of LVS_EX_INFOTIP is, in order to remove it from the registry...

Of course, I can work it out by enabling and disabling the feature in 2x, and watching the changes, but you often mention the #define name, as if I could just look that up.
