Hi!

Some months ago I've written a listbox class that displays a tooltip for truncated items in VB.net. The VB6 version of the tooltip class used by it is available for download now. The VB.net version is a bit out of date. I'll upload it together with the listbox class as soon as I've updated it.

/edit: Damn, I just noticed that I no longer have the code. I've probably deleted it by accident. However, I remember how to do this, so I'll prepare a small VB6 sample.

Here's a VB6 sample that demonstrates how to display a tooltip for listbox items that are too wide for the listbox and therefore get truncated.

Is possible to use your code to have the same effect on item in combobox in a userform of Excel project?

Hi,

not out of the box. I got it some kind of working in VB.net long time ago. The tooltip was displayed at the bottom of the combo's drop-down list. It seems to be impossible to display the tooltip on top of the drop-down list.
I don't have the time to port this code to VB6 or even VBA (I don't use MS Office). I've attached the VB.net version.
