Thanks in advance

Yes.

 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt( "MustDeclareVars", 1 )

Global $idFileMenu1

MainFunc()

Func MainFunc()

  Local $hGui = GUICreate( "Menu with Tooltip", 300, 200, -1, 300, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW )

  Local $idFileMenu  = GUICtrlCreateMenu( "File" )
        $idFileMenu1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem( "Menu 1", $idFileMenu )
  Local $idFileMenu2 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem( "Menu 2", $idFileMenu )
  Local $idFileMenu3 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem( "Menu 3", $idFileMenu )
  Local $idFileMenu4 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem( "Menu 4", $idFileMenu )
  Local $idFileMenu5 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem( "Menu 5", $idFileMenu ) ; $idFileMenu5 = $idFileMenu1 + 4

  GUIRegisterMsg( $WM_MENUSELECT, "WM_MENUSELECT" )

  GUISetState()

  While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()

      Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop

    EndSwitch

  WEnd

  GUIDelete( $hGui )
  Exit

EndFunc

Func WM_MENUSELECT( $hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam )
  Local $idMenu = BitAND( $iwParam, 0xFFFF )
  If $idMenu >= $idFileMenu1 And $idMenu <= $idFileMenu1 + 4 Then
    Local $sTip = "Tooltip for Menu " & $idMenu - $idFileMenu1 + 1
    ToolTip( $sTip )
  Else
