If you create a CMFCRibbonButton and you set bAlwaysShowDescription = 1 in the constructor, then a tooltip won't be shown when executed.

Thanks for the report. According to our investigation, this is not a bug – this property is intended for the second-level application menu items (such as “Print Preview” in MS Word) where the tooltip shouldn’t be displayed.
