This code demonstrates the new Infotip extension in Windows. (It works on Windows 2000 and on Windows 9x where IE is installed with Desktop integration)

After you register this DLL, you will notice a "hint" window pop up when you hover over a .DFM file. The hint shows you the forms caption, height, width and type(text/binary). The source code demonstrates what's done to show this text.

There's a DLL included (built with runtime libraries, Delphi 5) if you don't have the time to build the code.
