[wxTreeCtrl] ToolTip on items

Post by MoonKid » Sun Mar 01, 2009 2:42 pm

I have a wxTreeCtrl with different items in it.
On some items I want to display a tooltip if the mouse is over it.

How can I realize it? I need some inspiration for it because I found nothing about this in wxTreeCtrl.

Hi.

The only way is to implement your own popup control and show that one.
I have done something similar, I can post you the code later on if you don't find any other sholution.
