I see. Not to get off topic, but seeing how Windows 3.x is no longer being supported, I wonder how long untill Windows 95/98 are no longer supported...
I remember seeing some joker on a petitions site who was collecting signatures to continue a version of mIRC for Windows 3.x.
The reason for custom coding these controls is that they formed an integral part of the interface, and I wanted to make sure that they worked the same way under all versions of Windows, including Windows 3.1 for the 16bit mIRC.
Well obviously the "custom coded" tooltips don't work the same way under all versions of Windows like he claims, or else this post wouldn't even exist.
