Yes. And it's hard to see what else they could do about that. If you move
the mouse, should the tooltip move with it or stay stationary? and remain
visible until the mouse leaves the area which triggered the tip? That could
be a real nuisance - you would never get rid of the darn things.

On my system (Win2K) the longest I can set the double-click time to is about
800 msec. The down side to that is that it takes the tip longer to appear as
well (and makes my system more sensitive to accidental double-clicks :-(

One common solution is to have a status bar with a pane containing a copy of
the tooltip text. And it remains visible for as long as the mouse is within
that area. In Delphi (oops, did I say that word again) it is easy as there
is a status bar property which does this automatically. I suspect it is much
more work in VC.

Simon.
