Determining Balloon Help Status

The user turns on Balloon Help assistance by choosing Show Balloons from the
Help menu. To determine whether help is currently enabled, you can use
the HMGetBalloons function. If you display your own help balloons using the HMShowBalloon function, you should use the HMGetBalloons function to determine whether help is enabled before displaying a help balloon. If help is not enabled, you cannot display any help balloons. You can use the HMIsBalloon function to determine whether a help balloon is currently displayed on the screen.
