I've finally finished the new ToolTip Library biggrin.png

Note icon_exclaim.gif You will need latest AutoHotkey_L or AutoHotkey_H to use these functions.

TT() requires also _Struct and RemoteBuf

Thanks to Chris and Lexikos for AHK[_L] and everybody else for helpful posts in forum biggrin.png

Enjoy wink.png

Thanks. You forgot to notify about required Struct() function.

Updated TT_GetIcon(), now icon can be a png, jpg, gif... or even a hex string.
TT:=TT(),TT.Show("Hello World!","","","I'm a ToolTip","MyPng.png",[color=red]""[/color]) ;IconIndex must be "" here.

Hello HotKeyIt,

I haven't tried it yet, but it looks very nice. :)
Could you specify the license for TT() please.

Is this compatible with the 64bit version of AHK_L? I've noticed that ToolTip() crashes, so I'm wondering if 64bit is supported here.

Edit: I just took a quick look at the source and found multiple occassions where handles are used in DllCalls with UInt type. To my knowledge all handles need to have a PTR type in 64bit builds. Are you going to add 64bit support anytime soon?

I just tried the example, and AHK_L Unicode x64 crashes immediately on script startup, even when I put a msgbox as first line.
I put Struct.ahk and TT.ahk in lib directory, but including them in the demo has the same effect.

Edit: One more test, if I include Struct.ahk or TT.ahk (same directory as demo script) it already crashes, even if the demo script only contains one of those lines.

Right, thanks for testing.

Crash problem relates to Struct lowlevel (__getvar) which is not compatible with x64.
Can you try with this modified version: Struct64.ahk

Second problem might be due to Session 0 Isolation

Remarks

As part of the Vista re-architecture, all services were moved off the interactive desktop into Session 0. hwnd and window manager operations are only effective inside a session and cross-session attempts to manipulate the hwnd will fail. For more information, see The Windows Vista Developer Story: Application Compatibility Cookbook.


Anyway, can you try now and report back ;)

Now it does not crash, but it's not showing a tooltip either.
Using the demo file above, I first see a message box saying "Tooltip deleted, click ok for the next example.", and then nothing happens, and the last executed line is line 31, "Exit". I think it's still waiting for the close action to happen, but I can't press the button since I don't see the tooltip.

How are the sessions related to this topic? Is anything running as a service or system process? It works fine in Win7 32bit btw.

I am not sure what is wrong, all I can see is that SetWindowPos returns "invalid handle" error, CreateWindowEx seems to work fine :?
Can you have a look whether BallonTip() or ToolTip() work?

I will do so when I find some time (e.g. start of the week probably).

I assume you're passing the hwnd as "PTR"?
