I replaced the background image for the tooltip in
Code:
Explorer & Shell --> Explorer --> Tooltip --> Standard / Balloon
and additionally for 1903 and 1909 also in
Code:
Windows 10 Dark Mode --> Explorer & Shell --> Explorer --> Explorer Tooltip --> Standard / Balloon

In the 17.. and 18.. builds the new background (yellow) appears, but text just if the item is hot and focussed.

In the 19.. builds the old background (white) is still shown, despite of the entry in Windows 10 Dark Mode.

How can I fix this?

Like I said here: 

https://www.vistastylebuilder.com/forum/index.php?topic=2544.msg14537#msg14537

Background is Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Tooltip > Standard
Textcolors are Explorer & Shell > Explorer > TreeView > TreeItem > Hot, Selected, HotSelected etc

It has nothing to do with the balloon

This is working, but I am not sure if we are talking about the same:
First half of the video everything is fine in the tree view, second half of the video shows the problem I am talking about

Works for me:



Red is Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Tooltip > Standard
White text is Explorer & Shell > Explorer > TreeView > TreeItem > Hot


You are getting a blank because your tooltip and textcolor are the same color

Red is Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Tooltip > Standard
White text is Explorer & Shell > Explorer > TreeView > TreeItem > Hot

The one item which is working (first entry of 'Windows Classic') the normal color is black, changing to white when the mouse pointer is located at the item.
But the text color does not change from black to white when the tooltip appears, the text color remains black.

That's why I believe there must be another entry controlling this.
Furthermore I didn't define nowhere a yellow text color.

The entries at Explorer & Shell > Explorer > TreeView > TreeItem >  just control the behaviour in case there is sufficient space.

It's possible that you are getting something different because you are using Classic Shell Explorer instead of the default Explorer.

Maybe it's using Fonts, Colors, & System Metrics > Fonts & System Metrics > INFOBK instead of ToolTip.

Try going to INFOBK and change it's color to white. I know it says it's already white but it looks like and shows up as a pale yellow unless you change it.

It is also possible that it is using Fonts, Colors, & System Metrics > Fonts & System Metrics > INFOTEXT as a text color.

You will still need to use the TreeItem textcolors for the rest.

I don't know whether this will work. Otherwise I'm out of ideas.

Also, that Windows Classic text that stayed black instead of white when you hovered over it is

Explorer & Shell > Explorer > TreeView > TreeItem > HotSelected > Textcolor

It's HotSelected because it was selected before you hovered over it unlike the other items which were not already selected and so are only Hot.

If you don't believe me just change all the TreeItem textcolors to different colors and then test and see for yourself what happens.

Hello 3am,

sorry for the late reply.
If you don't believe me just change all the TreeItem textcolors to different colors and then test and see for yourself what happens.
It hasn't got anything to do to believe you or not - just the opposite is true, I appreciate your advices and efforts, which have been a big help.
But unfortunately real life takes all my attention now and the next few weeks, so I have stalled the further development of my visual style.
Hopefully I'll be back in April.
