I fear that it won't be "inside a tooltip" but more like a fake tooltip :(

I'd like to see an example like the one you mention :D

Monospace font and count characters.
I think that's the only way.

Okay I found a way to make this with a listView. Its rather complex and heavy just for a tooltip but maybe in the end you may decide if its worth it:

PS: I left more code than necessary to include other provided example by the kind contributors in posts above :D

In my real script it looks like this and it is shown on WM_MOUSEMOVE if hWnd = a Row # static ctrl
Image

Code: Select all

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
#SingleInstance, Force ; Prevent double execution of this script
#Persistent


; Faking what are normally dynamic variables (changing with different calculations)
Qt_1 := 2
, Mt_1 := 100000.00
, RawTs_1 := 4000.35
, RawTq_1 := 8000.68


; Prepare the values to display in the tooltip
Line := []
, Line.OverRowNumb  := 1
, OverRowNumb		:= Line.OverRowNumb
, Line.Quantite	 	:= Qt_%OverRowNumb%
, Line.PrixUnitaire := Mt_%OverRowNumb%
, Line.TPSUnitaire  := RawTs_%OverRowNumb%
, Line.TVQUnitaire  := RawTq_%OverRowNumb%
, Line.TotalHorsTx  := (Line.PrixUnitaire - (Line.TPSUnitaire + Line.TVQUnitaire)) * Line.Quantite
, Line.TotalTPS     := Line.TPSUnitaire	* Line.Quantite
, Line.TotalTVQ 	:= Line.TVQUnitaire	* Line.Quantite
, Line.TotalTAXES	:= Line.TotalTPS + Line.TotalTVQ
, Line.TotalAvecTx  := Line.PrixUnitaire	* Line.Quantite

BSort just checks to see what the longest item in a column is and adds a appropriately long divider between the column heading and entry's.

Most of the code is contained in the 4 examples, I'd suggest removing all but the first one and it will be much simpler to follow. Likewise, if you don't need it to follow your cursor you can remove the timer, setting the coordmode and the move function. You can use any font and any any size and it should fit just the same.

Code: Select all

#SingleInstance,Force
Columns:=["Date","Pupil","Grade"]
Column1:=["25 May","25 May","15 July","15 April"]
Column2:=["Bloggs, Fred","Doe, Jane","Bloggs, Fred","Muniz, Alvin, Hank"]

Table.Push({Date: "15 April", Pupil: "Muniz, Alvin 'Hank'", Grade: "A"})

config := [["Date"], ["Pupil"], ["Grade", "Center"]]
LV_Gui(Table, config)

Yes intuitively I did remove the other example and focused on one to customize it until I get it.

Its pretty nice. Thank you for clarifications about BSort too.

Now I am hesitating between regular ListView and this custom Gui. I'll keep testing on this topic tommorow.

I'm amazed how many different ways there are to do the same things :D

I cleaned up config and compressed the code
Very nice. Yes this easier to follow! Your object makes it easy to generate a quick ListView Gui for pop-up I like it!!

I've been messing around with this for a while and trying uncommun stuff.

Is therre a way to know what width a LV col is ?
I am trying such a idea :

Code: Select all

#NoEnv
#SingleInstance Force

Table := []
Table.Push({Date: "25 May", Pupil: "Bloggs, Fred", Grade: "C"})
Table.Push({Date: "25 May", Pupil: "Doe, Jane", Grade: "B"})
Table.Push({Date: "15 July", Pupil: "Bloggs, Fred", Grade: "A"})
Table.Push({Date: "15 April", Pupil: "Muniz, Alvin 'Hank'", Grade: "A"})
config := [["Date"], ["Pupil"], ["Grade", "Center"]]
LV_Gui(Table, config)
Esc:: ExitApp



;-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LV_Gui(ByRef Obj, ByRef config) {
;-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Col := []
    for each, Column in config
        Headers .= (Col[A_Index] := Column[1]) "|"
	
    Gui, -Caption
	Gui, Color, 000000 ; Black Gui Background
	Gui, Margin, 0, 0 ; Creates Black border around the ListView
	w := 300
    Gui, Add, ListView, Y30 w%w% R4 Grid -hdr, % Headers A_Space
	
	
    for each, Row in Obj {
        Private := []
        if IsObject(Row)
			Loop, % config.Length() - 1
				Private.Push(Row[Col[A_Index + 1]])
        else
			Private.Push(each, Row)
        LV_Add("", A_Index, Private*)
    }
    for each, Column in config
		LV_ModifyCol(A_Index, "AutoHdr " Column[2])
    LV_ModifyCol(LV_GetCount("Col"), 0)
	
	Gui, Font, s11 cWhite Bold
	Gui, Add, Text, 		% "x0  y0  w"55 " 	h30 +0x201 +bORDER"	, % "DATE"
	Gui, Add, Text, 		% "x+-1  y0  w"85 " 	h30 +0x201 +bORDER"	, % "PUPIL"
	Gui, Add, Text, 		% "x+-1  y0  w"65 " 	h30 +0x201 +bORDER"	, % "GRADE"
    Gui, Show
