This notification message is sent to the window specified in the hwnd member of the TOOLINFO structure for the tool. This notification is sent only if the LPSTR_TEXTCALLBACK value is specified when the tool is added to a ToolTip control.

When a TTN_NEEDTEXT notification is received, the application can set or clear the TTF_RTLREADING value in the uFlags member of the TOOLTIPTEXT structure pointed to by lpttt as required. This is the only flag that can be changed during the notification callback.
