Hi Timo!

Do you know any good solution?

MDI application with child forms. When child form is minimized and mouse is moved over forms titlebar then balloon tooltip pops out?

Best regards;
Meelis

You want to display a tool tip for minimized MDI child windows?
I don't know of any "official" way to do this, but my approach would be to create a tool tip and add the window as a tool when it gets minimized and remove/detach it when it gets restored.
