Tooltip on TD 63 using CNUI63.DLL

Post by visionpro » 05 Aug 2022, 13:03

Hi
I migrated my applications from TD2.0 to TD 6.3. I have an issue with tooltip using CNUI.dll ( It worked perfectly on TD2.0 & TD3.0 but it does not respond on TD 6.3)

The tooltip buiilt-in TD63 has been the allternative but the client still insist for me to implement the same tooltip with CNUI working in TD2 & TD3 apps.

Can someone pls help me to see why it does not work on TD 6.3. ( I am attaching a sample ).


Thanks

Samad

CNUI is problematic as this library is not maintained anymore and is fairly old.
The CNUI versions, specially the versions in TD 5.1 and up, are patched versions and are not build using the TD runtime.
The sources are unavailable (or at least, I can not find them), so when there are issues there is no way in fixing them.

Checking the tooltips I do not see why this fails and could not get it working. Even older TD versions fail on my system.
Could be the library is not working fully under new Windows OS versions.

I wonder why the client insists on using CNUI for tooltips. There are alternatives which are native TD and you could use something like

https://wiki.tdcommunity.net/index.php/ ... s#Tooltips

It is "dangerous" to rely on libraries where there is no support or where the sources are not available. Just one Windows update could break the library which makes fixing the issue impossible.
That would be not in the interest of any client.

I haven't dug into the archives for a much better solution.

Thanks a lot for your valuable help.

Accidentally googled the name of the CNUI lib...
Do you still really use CNUI for now? :o
JC! Its 2022. The last time I compiled it was 20+ years ago :shock:
