The CExtPropertyGridTipBar implements the tip panel at the bottom of the property grid control. You set the tip text for the property category and property value with the DescriptionSet() method and the tip text is displayed automatically for the selected category or value automatically.

The property grid combo box can be hidden or shown with the following code:

CExtPropertyGridTipBar * pWnd =
    STATIC_DOWNCAST(
        CExtPropertyGridTipBar,
        m_PGC.GetChildByRTC(
            RUNTIME_CLASS(CExtPropertyGridTipBar)
            )
        );
if( pWnd == NULL )
    return;
pWnd->ShowWindow( SW_HIDE ); // or SW_SHOW
m_PGC.RecalcLayout(); 
// obligatory to call this method of the property grid
