Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :mellow:

This shows how to detect a balloon TrayTip which pops up from a systray icon - which is what I assume you want as control tooltips only show when the mouse is already over them!

; Create TrayTip
TrayTip("Title", "Test", 30)
; Wait for it to appear

While 1
    ; Look for a window of that class to appear
    If WinExists("[CLASS:tooltips_class32]", "") Then ; You may need more specific information here <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
        ; Get the position and size of the TrayTip
        $aPos = WinGetPos("[CLASS:tooltips_class32]", "") ; And here <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
        ; Exit the While...WEnd loop

; Move the mouse to the centre of the TrayTip and click it
MouseClick("left", $aPos[0] + ($aPos[2] / 2), $aPos[1] + ($aPos[3] / 2), 1, 50)


If you use the Au3 Window Info tool, as FinalVersion suggested, you can get more details on the specific TrayTip you want to click. This will help you distinguish it from any others that might pop up - you enter the additional dtails where indicated in the script.

I hope this helps. :(
