We have some tool tip text for onmouseover of one our custom 2007 ribbon

icons:

---Division: Northern Region

Plant Manager: Fred Smith

Plant Manager Comment: Please deliver all incoming stock to gate A

Courier: DHL

Secondary: Fedex

Delivery Instructions: Deliver to second entrance after Building C

---What's happening is that Outlook is wrapping the text at will resulting in

layout not clean as above:

---Is there a way to either increase the width of the yellow tool tip box or

stop wrapping?

Or should we rather use a custom popup window so we can have full control

over the layout? If so do we need and is there a way to stop the tool tip

itself from appearing?

TIA

When you supply the text for that are you providing newlines where you want

line breaks to occur? Use Environment.Newline for that.

All is well -- I found that I could use the ScreenTip property (which

creates a bold header for the SuperTip) to control the width of the

SuperTip. e.g.

"My long heading text forces the width
