    Multi-line tooltip in system tray


    There's plenty of different code floating around to place an application (icon)
    in the system tray. Does anyone know how to implement a multi-line tooltip
    for the icon you place in the system tray?

    I'm pretty sure the sys-tray API does not provide support for this.

    I suspect the only way to do it would be with some sort of hook where you
    determine when the tooltip is about to be displayed and then display it
    yourself.
