Category   :VCL
Platform    :All
Product    :C++Builder  3.x

I'm tired of the little hint windows coming up when the mouse passes over all of my controls controls. Can't I send them down to the status bar.

1) Declare a new event handler in the published section of the form's class:
        void __fastcall ShowHint(TObject *Sender);

2) Assign the event to occur when an Application->OnHint event occurs:
    __fastcall TMainForm::TMainForm(TComponent* Owner)
        : TForm(Owner)
        Application->OnHint = ShowHint;

3) In the new event definition set the status bar text equal to the Application->Hint property:

    void __fastcall TMainForm::ShowHint(TObject *Sender)
        StatusBar->SimpleText = Application->Hint;
