List View with header tooltips

by Richard Russell, April 2011

The article List View with tooltips shows how to add tooltips to the main body of a List View control. Occasionally you may instead want to add tooltips to the column headers; the program listed below shows one way of achieving that. Basically it differs from the other program only in using the Header Control handle hwndHD% rather than the List View handle hwndLV%, and in substituting the LVM_SUBITEMHITTEST and LVM_GETITEMRECT messages with the equivalents for the Header Control: HDM_HITTEST and HDM_GETITEMRECT respectively.

It would be possible to combine the code from the two programs to provide tooltips for both the main body of the List View and the column headers. I will leave that as an exercise for the reader!
