HELP SIMULATOR IN VB40

How can i simulate a kind of help that appear near the mouse icon when it goes up on a button or textbox?
I think that there is a property in vb 50 but no in vb40.

Could i use a big icon with text in it?

Easy, all you have to do is make the label invisible when you move over the form.

Well, I don't know about VB5 (I know there is something like this in VC++5). But you have to do your own code in order to generate such help action when you move your mouse pointer over a control.
A good start is to insert a make a label (with yellow background color), Use the  MouseMove event of the control to display the label by making visible.
This will let you going.
I am sure there is no direct solution in VB4.

Easy, all you have to do is make the label invisible when you move over the container of the command. In other words, use MouseMove event of the Command container(It could be a form or a frame etc......).
